National Apprenticeship Awards 2021 national winners unveiled
The very best of England’s apprentices, apprentice employers, champions and rising stars have been celebrated at the 18th annual National Apprenticeship Awards.
The 18th Annual National Apprenticeship Awards took place last night, Wednesday 1st December.
For the first time ever a hybrid event was hosted with finalists, sponsors, Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi and Minister for Skills Alex Burghart in attendance at 30 Euston Square, London. The event was also live streamed with family, friends and supporters from across the apprenticeship community able to join in the celebrations online.
Strictly Come Dancing and BBC star Dan Walker returned to host the Awards for a second year.
Apprentices, at all levels and from sectors including retail and commercial, digital and manufacturing, alongside employers from the science, public services and engineering and manufacturing sectors were announced as winners. Ten winners and 18 highly commended finalists were recognised from across all nine English regions.
The National Apprenticeship Awards shine the spotlight on business and individual success in apprenticeships, and how apprenticeships can boost business success and lead to dream careers.
Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi said:
I would like to pass on my personal congratulations to all the award winners and highly commended entries.
It was a pleasure to attend the ceremony, and to have the opportunity to take part in a celebration which recognises the very best apprenticeship employers and their dedicated and driven apprentices.
Apprenticeships are key to supporting the country to level up skills and opportunity, and recognising the commitment of these employers and individuals further highlights their importance.
