An end to the NTAs

The National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has announced that they will not be running the National Training Awards (NTAs) any longer.

The statement reads:  “The landscape of awards ceremonies has changed dramatically since the NTAs were launched in the late 1980s and many other organisations now host programmes and recognition events, giving employers the chance to illustrate the merit of investing in quality skills training for existing and new staff.

“NAS will continue to manage the annual National Apprenticeship Awards and the awards for WorldSkills UK National Competitions. These awards recognise individual and employer excellence at a both a local and national level.

“The Skills Show and National Apprenticeship Week provide ongoing opportunities to showcase the very best of further education, skills and Apprenticeships as well as inspiring future generations of young people to achieve their career aspirations.”

“NAS would like to extend its gratitude to the many supporters of the National Training Awards over its 26 years of existence.”
