With 13 award categories to choose from to celebrate not only the apprentice, but the employer and training provider to shout about the success of apprenticeships across South Yorkshire.

Gradconsult are delighted to be sponsoring the Higher or Degree Apprentice of the Year. As an early talent consultancy, they are passionate about supporting the transition of students into the workplace and work with over 70 per cent of UK universities, and employers from all sectors on projects that promote and strategically support this transition.

Gradconsult believes Higher or Degree Apprenticeships are effectively tackling social mobility. They offer a chance to earn while you learn, and come out with no debt while gaining valuable workplace skills. They are strong advocates for this scheme and full of admiration for the incredible achievements and success of these apprentices.
