Why are these awards so important?

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

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.
