Come on everyone from within the North East Region, let us make a concerted effort and get those entries in now and showcase the best in our region both apprentices and employers.
In previous years we have struggled to get sufficient entries for one reason or another from the North East so let’s do much, much better in 2017. I need your help to please enter and also spread the word to others to join in too.
WHY – These awards are a top accolade for all the hard work apprentices and employers are putting into apprenticeships. They are real tangible examples of the many benefits apprenticeships bring to apprentices themselves and their employer.
As winners “The Best of the Best” gain public recognition for their achievements and really are inspiring ambassadors of apprenticeships.
The very best employer category entries will also have the additional bonus of featuring in the prestigious annual top 100 apprenticeship employers list.
The awards are now in its fourteenth year, and the search is on to find England’s top Apprenticeship employers and apprentices, whilst recognising those individuals that make a significant contribution to apprenticeships.
The National Apprenticeship Awards 2017 are open for entries to compete to be named ‘the best of the best’ on a regional and national level.
• Small Employer of the Year (1 – 24 employees)
