Trainee or Apprentice of the Year Award

Give a boost to your team members who are training and have shown exceptional skills and attitude.

The Trainee or Apprentice of the Year Award 2022 sponsored by Furness College, is chance for employers to let their team members know how much they are valued and appreciated.  

The award is open to anyone that is currently on a training scheme, apprenticeship, any kind of internal training programme or is simply new to their job and is in their training period.  The person must have shown exceptional skills and attitude alongside their training, above and beyond what you would expect.
