Today was the official announcement of the top 100 employers and Tops was ranked 12th in the UK!
We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you! Tops Day Nurseries has achieved a remarkable milestone by being listed as the 12th out of 100 top Apprenticeship Employers, as listed by the Department of Education. We are delighted to be recognised as the leading early years & childcare employer in the UK, as the highest-ranked provider that made it to the list. We missed out on the top spot to the likes of the British Army and the Royal Navy but achieved a higher position than the likes of Busy Bees Nurseries, Kids Planet Day Nurseries, N Family Club, Amazon, Specsavers, Tesco, Mcdonalds and John Lewis Partnership, which is amazing and you all should be super proud!
This recognition is a testament to our unwavering dedication to nurturing and empowering the next generation of talent through apprenticeships. We are incredibly proud of this achievement and the impact it has on both our organisation and the apprentices we support.
At Tops and Aspire, we firmly believe in the power of apprenticeships to shape careers and transform lives. By providing meaningful opportunities for hands-on learning, professional development, and mentorship, we have fostered an environment where apprentices can thrive and unlock their full potential. This recognition as a top apprenticeship employer affirms our commitment to offering exceptional growth opportunities.
The Value of Apprenticeships:
Apprenticeships serve as a bridge between education and employment, offering individuals a practical pathway to gain industry-specific skills and experience. They provide a unique learning experience that combines classroom instruction with on-the-job training, allowing apprentices to develop a strong foundation while contributing to real-world projects. By investing in apprenticeships, we not only nurture a skilled workforce but also foster a culture of continuous learning within our organisation.
The Role of Our Apprentices:
Our apprentices are the heartbeat of Tops. Their enthusiasm, dedication, and fresh perspectives bring immense value to our organisation. Through their hard work and commitment, they contribute to our growth, innovation, and success. We are grateful for their unwavering passion and the positive impact they have on our team and the broader industry.
Being ranked 12th among the top 100 Apprenticeship Employers is a significant milestone for us. It symbolises the collective effort of our entire team, including our apprentices, mentors, buddies, trainers, and support staff. This achievement would not have been possible without their hard work and commitment to excellence. We are immensely grateful for everyone’s contribution and the trust our apprentices have placed in us as their employer.
As we celebrate this momentous achievement, we are more motivated than ever to continue our journey of providing outstanding apprenticeship opportunities. We remain committed to expanding our programs, nurturing talent, and building a workforce equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving world.
