National Apprenticeship Awards 2022

Apprenticeships help to form successful lives and build thriving businesses across a large and diverse range of sectors. The Awards give both individuals and businesses the chance to display the very best apprenticeship practice across the country.

The National Apprenticeship Awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of both apprentices and apprenticeship providers. With the apprenticeship awards returning for their 19th year, it’s a time to showcase the apprentices, employers and champions who have gone above and beyond in the last year.

There will be nine face to face regional ceremonies during October 2022, while the national ceremony will take place on Wednesday 30th November.

Going through the application process will allow you to document all of your existing achievements. You’ll be able to show off your commitment to apprenticeships and receive recognition for your contributions. Remember, your CV or company profile will benefit if you find success as a regional or national finalist, so applying for an apprenticeship is completely worthwhile.
