Gloucestershire College has been named Digital Provider of the Year in the AAC National Apprenticeships Awards 2024.

Gloucestershire College, one of the county's leading providers of professional and technical training, has been crowned Digital Apprenticeship Provider of the Year in the 2024 AAC National Apprenticeship Awards.

Held at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham on Tuesday 27 February 2024, the AAC Apprenticeship Awards are a celebration of excellence in apprenticeship delivery in the UK, recognising outstanding employers, apprentices and business providers nationwide.

As a passionate advocate for tech skills education and increasing diversity in the sector, the college has become the go-to training provider for employers in Gloucestershire and the south west, offering an extensive portfolio of IT, cyber, software and digital apprenticeships from its £3 million training facility.

It also has CyberFirst Schools status from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and Tech Industry Gold accreditation. 

With Gloucestershire well on its way to becoming the UK's cyber hub, the college is committed to working with its academic, business and pubic sector partners to develop the region’s diverse talent pool through high-quality apprenticeships.

Julie Tegg, director of employer training and apprenticeships at Gloucestershire College, said: 'We are absolutely delighted to have our cyber and IT apprenticeship programmes recognised by this prestigious national award. It is testament to the hard work, skills and commitment of all the staff delivering the training and supporting apprentices and employers.

'Our priority has always been aligning training with industry demands, while considering business needs and objectives. We are proud of our proven track record of delivering positive outcomes for both employers and apprentices.'

Going forward, the college is particularly excited to launch its new Digital and Technology Solutions Professional (DATS) integrated degree and DevOps Engineer apprenticeships — all aligned to the region’s economic priorities, including the Golden Valley Development.
