Themis Awards 2024

The Themis Inspire and Achieve Awards 2024 have celebrated the achievements of the training providers apprentices and leading employers.

The ceremony was held at Burnley Football Club and saw Themis apprentices and employers winning trophies in categories including Future Boss, Digital Pioneer and the Ultimate Vision Award and was generously sponsored by John Turner Construction.

Some 200 nominees, their family and friends, distinguished guests and proud employers attended the spectacular event, enjoying an exceptional menu and drinks.

Winners received stunning, Themis-designed trophies, manufactured by learners at Burnley College using state-of-the-art, five-axis CNC machines which form part of the College’s Institute of Technology facilities and a cheque from event sponsors John Turner Construction.

Karen Buchanan, chief executive of Themis, the apprenticeship training arm of Burnley College, said: "Competition this year was tougher than ever, with a record number of nominees and shortlisted finalists. It made the judges’ job of choosing the winners incredibly difficult.

“Themis is proud of its track record in supporting the development of the very best apprentices in the region – the apprentices who go on to be a #futureboss and who make an incredible impact in the workplace."
