The 11th Study Travel Star Awards for International Education has announced the nominees in their August issue of the Study Travel Magazine, and at Stepwest we are pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for THIRD YEAR IN A ROW as a top 5 ST Star Work Experience Provider!
Thanks to the support of our partners around the world and the great Working Holiday, Internships and Education (study and work) Programs that we provide in Canada, we were shortlisted as one of the Top 5 Star Work Experience Providers in 2014 and 2015, and today we are proud to add one more year: 2016!
For those who are unfamiliar with the Study Travel Star Awards, it is an annual industry event in which peer-voted awards are given out to companies who have shown excellence among the top 800 companies in the study travel industry worldwide. These awards are significant because they help acknowledge the important connection between organizations that offer the best international education and work experience and the organizations that help to send international youth abroad for these experiences.
While writing this post, and celebrating our third nomination we remember just how excited we were back in 2014, when we got shortlisted for the very the first time by Study Travel Magazine! It´s been a while since then, and we have grown so much. We have had lots of learning experiences to help us get better at what we do everyday, and we have also gained some really rewarding stories from our clients that keep us motivated to keep up the good work! We create real life experiences that matter to our team, clients and partners. All of us together make Stepwest what it is, and we want to thank each and every single one of our partners, clients and host companies who have been part of Stepwest all this time and made it possible for Stepwest to be nominated this year as ST Star Work Experience Provider for third time in a row!
With 2 previous nominations for the last 2 years, at Stepwest we are looking forward to the 2016 ST Star Awards in London on Saturday, September 3rd. Stepwest was recently designated as a “Recognized Organization (RO)” by Citizenship and Immigration Canada via International Experience Canada (IEC). The designation is a big step for our growth at Stepwest, and it would be even better if we were awarded a ST Star Award this year. So fingers crossed and as the saying goes: Third times a charm! and of course, congratulations to all the nominees! See you in London!
