Employers and apprentices are encouraged to apply for the National Apprenticeship Awards 2013. There is now a month left to apply, with entries closing on Friday 26th April. Now in its tenth year, the awards will take place in November at The Skills Show, and will celebrate apprentices and employers involved in apprenticeships across the UK. They will demonstrate how apprenticeships deliver across a wide range of sectors.

Previous winners have gone on to achieve great things. A new category is out this year, Apprenticeship Employer Newcomer, which will acknowledge an employer who has recently started hiring apprentices and can demonstrate the benefits it has had on their business. The best employer entries will also appear in the annual Top Apprenticeship Employers List, published in partnership with City & Guilds.

Skills Minister, Matthew Hancock, said: “Apprentices deliver because they support economic growth, ensuring that both employers and employees have the skills they need for their companies to succeed. These awards offer a great platform for everyone involved to gain recognition not just for excelling in their chosen field, but for playing a leading part in that vital process.”
