Businesses have two weeks to win training grants

Businesses were reminded on Friday that the deadline for the Edge Awards 2007, to win part of a £300,000 training prize fund, is just two weeks away.
The Edge Awards will give away over £300,000, in cash, for employers to invest in training, as part of their long-term campaign to raise the status and desirability of vocational and practical training among 14-25 year olds. But deadline for the awards closes on 29 June. An Edge Awards spokesman said: 'Now in it's third year, the Edge Awards discovers, celebrates and rewards employers who are committed to providing practical learning opportunities for both their employees and the wider community, especially young people.'It also rewards young individuals, nominated by their employers, who have demonstrated outstanding success in learning this year. 'The awards are open to all employers in the UK. To enter, organisations must demonstrate how they offer learning-by-doing opportunities in the form of apprenticeships, day release schemes, work placements or new initiatives. 'Three organisations and practical learners will be rewarded regionally and will then be entered for the national awards, held on 22nd November at the Camden Roundhouse.' For further information, call the Edge Awards Line on 0800 980 3343.
