Do you know any employers that are committed to the success of apprenticeships in their organisation? Or perhaps your own apprentice has impressed you with their competence? In either case you should consider making a nomination for the National Apprenticeship Awards 2019 – but you’ll need to get a move on!
At 5PM this Friday (24th May) the nomination window for the National Apprenticeship Awards will close for another year. That’s less than one working week to recognise the people who make apprenticeships work for you; although to be fair that’s more than enough time to complete the nomination process…
The National Apprenticeship Awards, now in their 16th year, aim to showcase “the diverse range of sectors engaged with apprenticeships, and the success stories of those who have embraced apprenticeships with passion.” The awards are run by the National Apprenticeship Service, part of the Skills Funding Agency.
National Apprenticeship Awards 2019 – The Categories
There are nine categories open for nominations this year:
Apprentice of the Year
This category is split into three subcategories, each receiving their own award:
- Intermediate Apprentice of the Year
- Advanced Apprentice of the Year
- Higher or Degree Apprentice of the Year
Employer of the Year
As above, this category is also split into three subcategories with each receiving their own award:
- SME Employer of the Year (1-249 employees)
- Large Employer of the Year (250-4,999 employees)
- Macro Employer of the Year (5,000+ employees)
Recruitment Excellence Award
Rising Star Award
Apprenticeship Champion of the Year
The categories have remained the same as last year when several new additions were added. However there has been a change to the application process for the Apprenticeship Champion of the Year category, as individuals may no longer nominate themselves.
