Bauer Academy took home the Creative and Design Apprenticeship Provider of the Year Award and were Highly Commended for the Apprenticeship Provider of The Year category at the 2024 FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards.

 

The national awards, now in their 7th year, recognise the outstanding work of a provider within their sectors.

Beating hundreds of other submissions to be nominated in two of the award categories, winners had to demonstrate that they are a high-quality provider that goes above and beyond for their apprentices. Providers also needed to demonstrate how they are advocates for developing apprenticeships and embrace widening participation.

Highlighted during the ceremony were Bauer Academy’s excellent achievement, pass and distinction rates, as well as how tutors go the extra mile for apprentices. The work with employers to customise apprenticeships and the extensive work around new entrant talent were also recognised at the event.

As the market leading provider for the Arts, Media and Publishing sector, we have had over 250 apprentices on Junior Content Producer / Content Creator apprenticeship since 2017, achieving outstanding results for our learners. Our achievement rate for Content Creator in 2021/2022 was 89.5%, 32.5% higher than the last published national average, and we have continued this high achievement rate in 2022/2023. We have a 2022/2023 achievement and retention rate of 97% for Production Assistant and 90% for Media Production Co-Ordinator, as well as a 100% 1st time pass rate across all 3 standards!

 

 

The Bauer Academy team celebrated the award and the commendation by dancing the night away with the team from Aim Qualifications & Assessment Group, who are the award sponsor and EPAO for various standards delivered by Bauer Academy.

 

‘This recognition reflects the hard work and talents of everyone in the Bauer Academy team. We are still a relatively new training provider, so to be beating established providers and universities is a huge achievement and marks a significant milestone in our journey’

– Courtnay McLeod, Bauer Academy Director
