This category is focused on engineering or manufacturing SME employers with an outstanding commitment to sustainable business improvement through learning and development. 

Winner: Brandauer 

The judges were impressed by Brandauer launching the UK's first Precision Tooling Academy to ensure the transfer of essential skills from an aging workforce to a younger generation.

It has invested £1 million to create a commercial toolroom, and reshaped its apprenticeship approach, contributing to business growth and increased turnover.

Brandauer has also contributed to STEM education initiatives like The MAN Group's Design & Make Challenge.
