The LLDC’s East Works Awards, (formerly the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Apprenticeship Awards) is a celebration of the diversity of talent, innovation and businesses on and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The event recognises the achievements of people and partners participating in the London Legacy Development Corporation’s East Works programme and culminated in an awards ceremony.
Paul Brickell, London Legacy Development Corporation, said of the 2018 awards, “This year’s awards have recognised a particularly outstanding group of young people and employers. It shows how creating opportunities for young people and working with employers to address skills gaps is at the heart of what we’re delivering on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Now, as the Park moves into its next phase of development, there are exciting opportunities for all in a range of careers, from engineering, the digital and creative industries and leisure through to construction and the built environment”.
The first awards ceremony took place on 18th December 2013 at City Hall and the most recent was the fifth East Works Awards ceremony which took place on 1st November 2018.
