Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2019: Nominations Close Next Week

Nominations for the Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2019 are now open! Why not nominate your apprentice today?

The Scottish Apprentice Awards, run by Skills Development Scotland, are now in their 18th year of celebrations. Skills Development Scotland focus on “setting people up for success in their careers” and by running the event, apprentices, employers and training providers can come together to honour the growth and diversity of apprenticeships.

SDS Director of National Training Programmes, Katie Hutton, said: “The awards showcase the skills of apprentices, the commitment of employers and the dedication of training providers across sectors and across Scotland. The standard of previous nominations has always been extremely high, and I am certain this year’s award entries will be no less impressive.”

“The awards are also a valuable opportunity to showcase diversity as well as the breadth of opportunity across Scottish apprenticeships.”

The event is not only held for the apprentices but also for employers of any size, with awards such as SME Employer of the Year. Recognition will be shown for training providers too.
