With close to a million active Apprenticeships across England alone apprenticeship schemes have rapidly become a route to future employment for thousands of school leavers. These awards recognise and reward both the apprentices, their employers, mentors and training providers excelling across the entire of South Yorkshire.

The awards provide the opportunity to recognise apprentices and are inviting entries from businesses, apprentices and training providers across South Yorkshire.

Last September employers and businesses from across South Yorkshire attended the 2021 awards to celebrate those involved in apprenticeships right across the region when presenter Jordan Williams took to the stage and revealed the winners.
