The deadline for nominations for the annual celebration of the people and the companies that make apprenticeships so successful is now just two weeks away.

A range of awards are up for grabs to highlight the outstanding work done by our region's apprentices - and the firms who employ them.

The 3rd Annual Peterborough Telegraph Apprenticeship Awards celebrate and recognise the hard-working individuals and organisations involved in apprenticeships, and how they shape our future.

Winners of the Peterborough Apprenticeship Awards 2021.

There is just a fortnight left to ensure your apprentices, mentors and firm are given the recognition they truly deserve after two of the toughest years in business.

Entries close on June 30 for the competition, which recognises the best new talent in the region, and the businesses which nurture them.

Judges will be scrutinising all the entries from a range of companies in the area – and your business, whether it employs a handful of people.

The last two years have been the most challenging ever, both for businesses and those in education.

There are just two weeks to go to the deadline for entries to be in for the Peterborough Apprenticeship Awards 2022.

And in honour of the resilient young apprentices and the individuals and firms mentoring them, nominations have been opened up for this great event.

The awards ceremony will be held in the Holiday Inn, Thorpe Wood, on September 29, but you only have until June 30 to get your entries in, before a judging panel will select the region’s top performers in a range of categories.

Nominations can be submitted by apprentices, their employer, college or training provider or even by proud loved ones. There are also categories for employers and mentors, so businesses can nominate their own teams and trainers. A regional apprentice of the year will also be selected.

Openreach is the headline sponsor for the awards which will pay tribute to the diversity of careers and skill levels apprenticeships offer, as well as heralding the role employers play in producing the next generation of skilled talent.

Telecommunications giant Openreach is the headline sponsor for the Peterborough Apprenticeship Awards 2022.

A spokesperson for event sponsor the Road Haulage Association, said: “We are so excited to attend this event to celebrate apprenticeships across our region, we are constantly proud of the talent, energy and enthusiasm apprentices bring to our business.”
