Now in its third year, the Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards is well established as one of the leading training awards in the South West. Hosts Truro and Penwith College are again on the hunt for both Apprentices and Employers that are demonstrating outstanding achievement and commitment to Apprenticeships, and nominations are open now.
The Gannel building at Truro College will again be transformed for the evening where Pirate FM presenters Holly Day and Neil Caddy will take centre stage as hosts.
Any learner or employer who is involved in Apprenticeship training in Cornwall is eligible to be nominated, regardless of the College or training provider that delivers their training, provided they are still training as an Apprentice, or completed their training after 1st June 2016. Forty-two nominees will be shortlisted, and a panel of judges consisting of employers across Cornwall will decide who will be the Apprentice or Employer of the Year in each of the fifteen categories.
Anyone can nominate and it is completely free to do so. Nominations will close at 17:00 on 11th September 2017.
NEW for 2017 - Public vote
Members of the public will have an opportunity to help determine the Achiever of the year for the first time in 2017, by voting for their winner from three shortlisted nominees on the Truro and Penwith College website. The public vote will go live after nominees are shortlisted in early September, and the result will be combined with the scores of three judges from Apprentice employers to determine the winner of the category.
