The annual awards aim to challenge top apprenticeship employers and apprentices across England to come forward and show how apprenticeships have made a real difference to their organisation and careers.

Aidan Day, Joint Managing Director of SPORTCEL, said: “I am delighted that for the eighth consecutive year, and particularly in such a challenging economic period, the team working on the national Apprenticeship Awards here at Sportcel have, once again, not only secured commercial partners for all 12 Awards but also exceeded revenue targets, with many leading UK companies and organisations continuing to recognise the value of association with this this flagship government initiative.”

Over 800 people are expected to attend the National Apprenticeship Awards evening at the historic Grosvenor House on Park Lane, on Thursday 18th January 2018. Senior Government representatives, business leaders, sector specialists, dignitaries and celebrities will be in attendance alongside the award nominees, sponsors and hosts.

A new addition that the Grosvenor House will be hosting this year is an Employers’ Apprentice Forum in association with Centrica. Which has created an opportunity to further support engagement on apprenticeships between leading UK employers, the Skills Minister and the National Apprenticeship Service.  

Those at the event will enjoy a wonderful celebratory evening beginning with a drinks reception followed by a three-course dinner, awards presentation, speeches and entertainment.

There are still a number of ways to get involved in the future awards. If you wish to find out more, please contact Immy Wade on +44 (0)20 8232 7179 immywade@sportcel.com
