The success of apprentices learning their skills at City of Wolverhampton College are set to be celebrated in an online awards ceremony.
The virtual Apprentice Awards 2021 will take place on Thursday 15 July, 6pm-7pm, with apprentices, employers, apprenticeship assessors and college staff logging in to join the celebrations.
The event will feature presentations of Apprentice of the Year Awards for apprentices studying at levels two, three and four and above who have been nominated by their college assessor, as well as Rising Star Awards for apprentices put forward by their employers.
The ceremony will also include the presentation of the overall Apprentice of the Year 2021 award, selected by judges from all category winners and awarded to the apprentice who has made the most progress throughout the year and used their skills and knowledge to make a real contribution in the workplace.
Jo Baugh, head of apprenticeships at the college, said: “The last 18 months have been incredibly difficult for apprentices and employers alike and we want to celebrate the resilience they have demonstrated.
“The standard of entries for the awards were very high and, in certain categories, it was extremely difficult to select a winner.
“All nominees should be very proud of the progress they have made throughout the year, and we are looking forward to celebrating their success at the online ceremony.”
Apprenticeships enable people to earn while they learn by combining working for an employer with gaining practical skills and knowledge at college.
