The Lancashire Apprenticeship Awards was held on 31st March at the Mill Farm Sports Village to celebrate the success of apprenticeships and kick starters across the county.

Crowberry Consulting was the winner of the category SME Employer, for the county. As a Chorley based business, they have invested in apprenticeships for over 10 years offering a range of roles including Project Management, Digital Marketing, Business Administration and Team Leading.

Becky Toal Managing Director said “We are proud to have offered a range of quality apprenticeships since 2012 working with various local colleges in the North West. In 2017 we were recognised by the National Apprenticeship Services as a Top 100 Employer of apprenticeship, and in 2020 we won the North West Regional SME Employer of Apprenticeships. We are also a Lancashire Skills Pledge signatory and a Society for the Environment Employer Champion to promote the professional skills in our sector. As a sustainability consultancy we believe in learning and development and continued professional development for all our staff, it’s a delight to have won this Lancashire award”.

Nicola Adam, Editor of Lancashire Post said “These awards celebrate those who have grasped the opportunity and bloomed within their chosen apprenticeship, setting a solid base for their future while playing an invaluable role within industry. All the finalists and winners have been carefully selected by an independent judging panel, including the Head of Business Development at Blackpool and Fylde College, Sarah Hall, representatives from the Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub and Group Marketing Manager at Porsche Centre Preston. Collectively the panel reviewed hundreds of nominations before selecting the winners and finalists”.

There was a total of 12 categories on the night, and many local colleges were represented. The host for the evening was Jordan Williams.

Customer Testimonial - Stothert Cushions

“UNICEF UK has always been concerned with its environmental impact and engaged with Crowberry Consulting Ltd  to formally calculate our carbon footprint for 2022 and provide actions for us to follow through on our path to net zero.  Becky and the team were clear on the data they required from us which made the process simple.  The final report has given us a range of feasible options to pursue and it was explained in a very clear manner which will enable us to explain our current and future climate targets to our staff and supporters.”

Steven Waugh, Chief Financial Officer, UNICEF UK (London)

We recently worked with the team at Crowberry Consulting Ltd to support our Quality Management System (ISO9001) implementation, they provided us with internal training, implementation, documentation support and guidance and on site internal audits. Our team has worked over the last year to embed the quality system values and are proud to be recommended for certification by our external certification body. We would highly recommend the team at Crowberry Consulting who supported our team with this standard.
