Troup Bywaters + Anders were crowned as the British Gas sponsored Medium Employer of the Year at the National Apprenticeship Awards at an exclusive ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House on Friday 20th January 2017.
The Awards, now in their thirteenth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas: businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.
South Thames College has worked with Troup, Bywaters + Anders for over five years and has enrolled and supported over 20 apprentices. The College delivers the Advanced Apprenticeship in Building Services Engineering to the apprentices based at their London office.
Sue Husband, Director, National Apprenticeship Service was the host on the night. She concluded: “The National Apprenticeship Awards have highlighted once again the magnificent range of apprenticeships on offer - with leading employers in exciting industries - and the skills that apprentices gain when taking on these roles.
Every year this event gets bigger and better, bringing to the forefront of our minds the importance of apprenticeships to local, regional and national economies. Apprenticeships are for everyone, and I personally thank each and every employer and apprentice recognised at Friday’s event for their commitment to apprenticeships.”
Troup Bywaters + Anders is a building services engineering partnership, established in 1958, employing 210 people across 8 UK offices, 20% of which are apprentices.

We are pleased to announce plans to merge with Carshalton College and Kingston College during 2017 to create an exemplary new college for South-West London.
It is the intention that all three colleges will continue to have a big presence in their own communities and we would like to reassure you that we anticipate this will not affect the course you are currently studying on or applying for.
This decision reflects the partnership work already in place between the three colleges and will maximise the opportunities available to students, increasing the quality of courses offered and the links established with employers, universities and local communities.
As part of the merger process there will be a consultation period where we will welcome feedback on our proposal.
