The Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2020 are now open for entries and nominations. The Awards are great way to celebrate the achievements of Apprentices and those who support them. They also help to raise awareness of opportunities and successes in the sector.

There are 12 award categories and you can read more about each of them in the flyer below. Last year, a Martial Arts Instructor Apprentice won the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year Award! This year, there is a new Work Experience Employer Award for organisations that offer work placements, which play a vital role in recruitment of Apprentices. There is also a Special Recognition Award for Apprentices who have overcome challenges in work or learning and a Shining Star Award for former Apprentices who have progressed in their career.

If you know of any Apprentices, or people who employ them, who would like to enter or nominate for an Award, please share these details with them. They just have to complete a Word form and return it via email to enter. You can find out more and download an entry or nomination form at:
