The APSE Scotland Building and Housing Apprentice of the Year Awards are specific to front line service areas and support excellence in training standards within local authorities and their partner organisations throughout the UK.
The Apprentice of the Year awards are back for 2018. The aim of the Apprentice Awards, which are open to every Scottish Council, is not only to give recognition to our future tradespersons/ professionals, but also to the Councils themselves who continue to invest in and provide first class training / employment initiatives in bone-fide Craft/Modern Apprenticeship schemes given the current economic conditions this is increasingly important and needs to be encouraged.
The Awards scheme is open to all recognised apprenticeships within the areas of Building and Housing and to apprentices from all stages of training and also includes a non trade/professional category. Each entry will be examined individually and assessed on its own merit.
Submissions are now open for the 2018 awards. All of the information can be found on the Notification of Interest form. The first deadline, for nominating each apprentice, is Friday the 29th of September 2017. Following that, the deadline for Portfolios arriving at the APSE office is Tuesday the 17th October 2017.
