Celebrate National Apprenticeship Week by submitting your entries for our West Yorkshire Apprenticeship Awards 2024
and live on Freeview channel 276
Our journey with the apprenticeship awards began in 2017, driven by the desire to spotlight the success stories emerging from apprenticeship programmes. We aim to showcase not only the achievements of apprentices but also the invaluable support from their employers, mentors and training providers.
Apprenticeships provide a unique approach to education, training and career development. The hands-on learning experience, coupled with the opportunity to earn while you learn, makes apprenticeships a dynamic pathway for individuals exploring diverse industries, from traditional trades to cutting-edge fields like technology and healthcare.
The programme often serves as a gateway to full-time employment in industries that apprentices may not have previously considered, as highlighted by many of our finalists who shared inspiring insights into the transformative impact of apprenticeships on both the apprentice and the employer.
Completing an apprenticeship frequently leads to industry-recognised certifications, enhancing individuals' credibility and employability and facilitating smoother transitions into different roles or advancements within their chosen fields.
Join us in celebrating the exceptional apprenticeship network in West Yorkshire at the highly anticipated West Yorkshire Apprenticeship Awards 2024. With 14 carefully crafted categories, this event pays homage to the outstanding contributions shaping the future of apprenticeships in the region.
