A HOUSING provider has been named as one of England’s top 100 apprenticeship employers.

Sedgefield Borough Homes is one of 11 North-East companies included in the list which was launched at the National Apprenticeship awards ceremony in London.

The accolade comes just weeks after the housing group was highly commended as a runner-up in the North- East Medium Employer of the Year award by the National Apprenticeship Service.

The firm employs about 170 people and manages 8,500 properties in the former Sedgefield district.

About 27 per cent of staff started their career as an apprentice or trainee.
