Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2020 – Nominations Open

Nominations for the Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2020 are now open ​​​​

Entries are being sought to showcase innovation of the learning providers who have worked with employers and apprentices to support their efforts in exceptional times.

The awards will also highlight the resilience and hard work of Foundation, Modern and Graduate Apprentices during 2020. They will shine a spotlight on individuals and employers across the country who have championed apprenticeships – and recognise businesses’ work to support equality and diversity.

It’s never been more important to recognise the success of dedicated apprentices, the commitment of their employer and innovations shown by learning providers.
Nominations close at noon on Wednesday, 25 November 2020 and winners will be revealed during Scottish Apprenticeship Week, which takes place from 1-5 March 2021.
