The Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2018 will recognise the best talent in the county with a special presentation evening on Thursday 1st March 2018 at Blenheim Palace, in the run up to National Apprenticeship Week and Liga College are proud to be the Headline Sponsor.
The purpose of the awards is to celebrate the achievements of the county’s Apprentices and recognise the huge contribution they make to our local economy across a wide number of organisations and sectors.
There are four ‘Apprentice of the Year’ categories – Intermediate, Advanced, Higher and Special Recognition, for an Apprentice who has overcome significant challenges or barriers to learning or work - with an overall Oxfordshire Apprentice of the Year to be chosen from the winners.
In addition to focusing on Apprentices themselves, the Awards also recognise schools, who play a crucial role in inspiring people to consider and start an Apprenticeship, as well as training providers, who support and guide them through the progamme.
Two new employer categories have also been introduced for 2018 – small employer (<50 employees) and large employer (50+ employees) to celebrate and champion local employers who offer exceptional Apprenticeship schemes.
Please encourage any star Apprentices you know to enter, or nominate them – we know they can sometimes be a little shy about coming forward!
If you’re an Apprenticeship employer, school or training provider, don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate your successes and shout about what you do! Give yourself a pat on the back and set a great example of good practice to others.
It’s really easy to enter, just download a form from www.oxfordshireapprenticeships.co.uk/awards. You’ll find all the details about the categories and the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2017 here too.
