Updated: Jan 5, 2021
We are delighted to announce that Neil Weller, Chairman of the London Apprenticeship Ambassador Network (LAAN) has been awarded an MBE in the 2021 New Year's Honours for his outstanding services to Education and Skills.
Neil, who was appointed Chairman of the LAAN in 2017 has devoted his work to supporting young people into apprenticeships and training, and has acted as an advocate for those employers who are yet to realise the benefits apprentices bring to their workforce.
Neil was the Managing Partner for Building Services Design Engineering Consultancy Troup Bywaters + Anders up to 2015, expanding the practice nationally during his tenure. He formalised their apprenticeship scheme in 2010 and subsequently acted as the lead employer to develop approved, Level 3 and Level 6 Building Services Design Trailblazers; whilst simultaneously setting bespoke college courses which historically had not met the partnership's needs.
The practice’s apprenticeship scheme has won numerous awards over the years and their apprentices have also been recognised individually for their achievements.
Separately, TB+A are an IiP Platinum Champion employer guiding other organisations to deliver best practice in People Management and have been awarded the prestigious Princess Royal Training Award.
Whilst also being involved in numerous steering groups such as the, National Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC), CIBSE BESA Education Committee, GLA Skills for Londoners Apprenticeship Sub-Group, CIBSE Careers Panel and more, Neil plays a fundamental role in helping to drive the apprenticeships and skills agenda forward and we would therefore like to congratulate him on this fantastic and very well deserved achievement.
