"We are very honoured by the recognition our apprenticeship scheme has received, both at the National Apprenticeship Awards and by receiving a spot on the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer's list. Our scheme has enabled us to recruit and develop our own talent, as well as offer realistic career opportunities in our local community."
David Way, Chief Executive of the National Apprenticeship Service, congratulated Neopost Limited on its success. "The breadth and depth of employers on our Top 100 list just goes to show the huge impact Apprenticeships have on companies of all sizes and the UK economy."
"Apprenticeships are the country's gold standard for vocational training. As part of the new era for Apprenticeships we are introducing measures to ensure there has never been a better time for employers to hire apprentices."
"With more Higher, degree level, Apprenticeships, rigorous new standards for all Apprenticeships and new financial incentives for small firms who hire their first apprentices, employers can be confident that Apprenticeships will deliver for them."
Meanwhile, CEO and Director General of City & Guilds, Chris Jones, said.

Apprenticeships are integral to helping us achieve this; they develop the workforce of tomorrow, whilst giving people the skills they need to succeed in employment.
