National Apprenticeship Awards 2018 – now open for entries

The 15th National Apprenticeship Awards is now open for entries – with new categories opening up for 2018.

Hosted by the National Apprenticeship Service, the National Apprenticeship Awards showcase the diverse range of sectors engaged with apprenticeships and celebrate outstanding apprentices, employers and those individuals who go above and beyond to champion apprenticeships.

One of the new categories is the recruitment excellence award which will recognise employers who have attracted a diverse and high-quality apprenticeship workforce through new and innovative approaches to recruitment.

Also, for the first time, a rising star award will showcase apprentices who have made impressive progress in their career to date and who show the potential, through their apprenticeship, to take a career path to the very top of their chosen profession.

Apprentice employers and apprentices from all sectors and industries are invited to enter the awards. Judged by a team of experts, entrants have the opportunity to be crowned a regional winner at nine awards ceremonies set to take place across the country. From the regional champions, a national judging panel will select the overall National Apprenticeship Award winners, to be celebrated at a national ceremony on 28 November 2018.

The awards are the largest and most prestigious celebration of apprentices and apprentice employers across the country.

The deadline for entrie is 25 May. Find out more and submit your entry now.
