The annual NCWE Awards recognise and reward employers for their good practice in work experience provision.
The Awards showcase the very best of what employers have to offer and aim to commend work experience providers that have put thought, time and effort into helping students develop key employability skills. They also highlight the business benefits that students have brought to a company.
On 5 March 2009, 180 guests from over 90 different organisations across the UK were welcomed to London’s Merchant Taylors’ Hall, the setting of this year’s NCWE awards ceremony.
Following a drinks reception and a welcome speech from Mike Hill, Chief Executive of Graduate Prospects, guests were given a student’s perspective on work experience, from Mike Sully, Shell Step Finalist 2008, and a brief outline of the judging process by Alison Clark, NASES.
Professor and broadcaster, Laurie Taylor, took to the stage after lunch for a short speech about work experience. He was then joined by the Director of NCWE, Heather Collier, for the moment everyone had been waiting for; the presentation of awards.
With a record-breaking number of entries this year, and the addition of two new categories, the NCWE award ceremony was bigger and better than ever.
