The Peterborough Telegraph is searching for the county's best workforce talent in the third annual awards of its kind.

The awards seek to recognise the value of apprentice programmes and how they can transform lives, highlighting the opportunities from employers and training providers, as well as recognising the star apprentices who are excelling in their field.

With close to a million active apprenticeships across England, apprenticeship programmes have fast become a route to future employment for thousands of school leavers.

These awards recognise and reward both the apprentices and their employers that are excelling across Peterborough.

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

Not only does winning an award mean so much to the individual apprentice, it is also a major morale boost for the company and workforce that support them.

Nominations can be submitted by the apprentice themselves, their employer, college or training provider or even by proud loved ones

While the new deadline for entries has been set at July 15, the awards will still be presented at a ceremony on September 29 at the Holiday Inn West Thorpe Wood, Peterborough, where guests will enjoy a welcome drink, three course meal and entertainment.

Mark Rainbow, of the awards’ headline sponsor, Openreach, said: “We are proud to once again to be headline sponsor of the awards. Learning is of huge importance to Openreach and our training school in Peterborough plays a key role making sure our new and existing engineers have all the skills they require to keep the region’s fibre broadband network connected.”

The deadline for entries to the Peterborough Apprenticeship Awards 2022 has been extended to July 15.
