Curo has been awarded the accolade of Business Employer of the Year at Bath College's 2015 Celebrating Success Awards.
At Curo we've made it one of our priorities to help people into work, with an accredited work placement programme, apprenticeships, scholarship and graduate scheme among our initiatives for local people and Curo customers.
We were nominated for the award for the outstanding work we do supporting apprenticeships and for residents looking to improve their employability skills.
Barney Willis, Bath College's Head of Services to Business & Work-Based Learning, said: "The programme of work experience that Curo delivers is, on its own, very good. However with the addition of the other elements in the programme, such as the pastoral and the accredited training programmes the overall package, in my view, is outstanding.
"Curo themselves lead the way in offering job and apprenticeship opportunities but not only do they do that, they also encourage their supply chain to help their residents in gaining employment and apprenticeships. An innovative model that many organisations would do well to copy”.
