Search is on for top apprentices

THE search is now on to find the country’s top apprenticeship and training champions, as the National Training Awards and National Apprenticeship Awards join forces for the first time.

Both awards, which are run by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), are now open for entries to compete to be named ‘the best of the best’ on a regional and national level.

John Hayes, Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning Minister, said: “These joint awards offer a great platform for young people and employers to gain recognition not just for excelling in their chosen field, but for playing a leading part in that vital process.”
