Apprentices commissioned to make trophies for Asian Apprenticeship Awards

A team of apprentices have been commissioned to create trophies for the annual Asian Apprenticeship Awards.

The apprentices from the Midlands-based engineering company Salop Design and Engineering Ltd will design and manufacture the trophies, which will be given to winners.

Salop supplies goods to the manufacturing, automotive and aerospace industries, with clients such as Jaguar Land Rover and Nissan. It won the ‘promoting apprenticeships in the workplace’ award at the Nachural Summer Business Ball earlier this year.

Now in its second year, the AAA aims to showcase the work of Asian apprentices, and help increase BAME employment by 20 per cent by 2020.

Nominations for the awards are now open, with categories for employers, apprentices, learning providers and schools, and winners will be announced at a ceremony in Birmingham on November 2.

Isa Mutlib, project director for the AAA, said: “Nominating for the awards recognises and celebrates the hard work of talented British Asian apprentices, their employers and learning providers. Not only this, but we are also able to raise the profile of apprenticeships within the British Asian community bringing benefit to the lives of the apprentices, businesses and the economy.”
