Cultivate London was highly commended in the category “Best Business for Apprenticeships and Employment for Young People” at London Business Awards this week.

The London Business Awards are organised by Prospects Business Support, part of the Prospects Group which provides a wide range of education, employment and training services in the UK and internationally.

More than 330 guests attended the ceremony and gala dinner, which was held at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, to hear the winners of each of the 11 categories, along with the overall London Business of the Year 2014, announced. Cultivate London was one of more than 100 shortlisted companies to be selected by an independent judging panel made up of industry and business experts.

Rose Saunders, Head of Prospects Business Support said:

Congratulations to everyone involved. The judges were blown away by the standard of entries. Although not everyone could win, it proved that there are so many fantastic companies in the capital. For this reason, I am convinced that the London Business Awards will become even bigger in the coming years.

Cultivate London is incredibly pleased to have received this honour, which follows on from our win in the same category in the 2013 Hounslow Business Awards. We would like to thank all our partners and customers for their continued support, and our apprentices and trainees who are the reason we are here! The full list of winners can be found on the Prospects Business Awards website.
