December 9th 2013
We are delighted to announce that W Academy and Education’s Managing Director, Marc Wildes, has won the coveted Business Person of the Year award at this year’s Sheffield Business Awards.
The awards, which took place at Ponds Forge SIV last night, recognised the success of individuals and businesses who have played a vital role in the continued economic success of Sheffield over the past year.
Recognising his dedication to helping young people into work at W Academy & Education, which continues to provide a comprehensive range of qualifications and apprenticeships, promoting real life learning in state-of-the-art surroundings to hundreds of learners, Marc collected his award from presenter and Strictly Come Dancing star Gethin Jones.
Marc said: “We are proud to have received this recognition, which is testament to the ongoing and strengthening relationships we have with so many businesses across the region, and rewards the hard work and commitment shown by all of our team members.
“The Yorkshire market is back on the up and we’re keen to continue to provide outstanding training to young people across the region to get them fantastic jobs. We placed 150 people in work last year and we’re aiming for 250 this year.”
