24 of Worcestershire’s best apprentices, employers, training providers and schools have been announced as finalists at the Worcestershire Apprentice Awards 2016 and tables are now on sale.
Following impressive nominations across all 10 awards, which are all sponsored by local companies, this year’s finalists once again represent the exceptional work of apprentices and those who support Worcestershire’s young talent.
Finalists for each award, businesses and guests will attend The Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards at 6:30pm, on Thursday 17 November at the Tree Tops Pavilion, West Midland Safari Park where the winners in each category will be announced.
The awards will be presented by business owner and winner of the first series of BBC’s The Apprentice, Tim Campbell MBE, and promise to be even bigger and better than last year’s awards which saw over 300 people in attendance.
The popular celebration event will culminate in the two overall awards of Apprenticeship Employer of the Year, which is sponsored by Yamazaki Mazak UK Ltd. and Apprentice of the Year, sponsored by the Worcester Bosch Group, to recognise outstanding achievement.
Tables have now gone on sale and spaces at the high-profile event are limited. Seats cost £85 each and a table of 10 can be bought for £800 and those who wish to attend, are being urge to secure their places at the earliest opportunity.
