Themis at Burnley College reaches finals in two categories of prestigious Lancashire Apprenticeship awards

Apprentices, Tutors and Trainers alike are celebrating at Themis – the Apprenticeship training arm of Burnley College – after reaching the finals in two hotly-contested categories of a countywide search for the best Apprentices and training providers.
It’s the Year of the Themis Apprentice and what better way to celebrate than even more shortlisting success for our talented Apprentices and industry-expert Trainers.
The Lancashire Apprenticeship Awards take place on 31 March – and Themis has made the finals in two categories.
Level 3 Business Administration Apprentice Jenna Jones has been shortlisted for the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year – open to Level 2 and Level 3 Apprentices.

Jenna (19), a former pupil at Shuttleworth College, has hugely impressed her employers at Chartered Accountants MacMahon Leggate.

Her Trainer Assessor Rebekah Heys says she has made a real difference to the business:


Jenna impressed everyone by stepping up immediately and taking the lead on a project.
She took part in a large-scale data cleanse, which help MacMahon Leggate move from an old computer system to a brand new, far more efficient one.
This is not a straightforward task and requires extensive technical knowledge alongside
many administrative and legal requirements.

Themis is also a finalist in the Training Programme of the Year. The closely-fought category honours organisations who work “effectively with a range of employers to offer quality training”.
At Themis we pride ourselves on ensuring our Apprenticeships are industry-led, providing the highest-quality training so Apprentices are workplace-ready maintaining regular dialogue with employers across all industries to ensure we remain ahead of the curve.
Head of Apprenticeships Hannah Cutler says it is further confirmation we are doing things right:


We ensure every single one of our Apprentices has the opportunity to be the Best the Best – and to learn the skills and gain the knowledge needed to become a #futureboss and a leader of industry.
We’re proud of the connections we have within all aspects of industry – from engineering and aerospace to finance, sport and fitness and more.
We are delighted our efforts are being recognised by across the county and beyond.
