A group of 32 fantastic finalists for our second annual Apprenticeship Awards have been announced ahead of next month's ceremony.
Johnston Press, the parent company of The Star, the Sheffield Telegraph and the Doncaster Free Press, launched the awards to recognise the value of on-the-job training in the region.
We asked for individuals, companies and training institutions to put themselves forward across a variety of categories. The finalists have now been decided, and the winners will be announced at the Showroom Workstation in Paternoster Row, Sheffield, on Tuesday May 15.
Zena Wardle, from Polypipe our headline sponsor, said: “I felt privileged to be a part of the judging panel for the second year running of the NMSY Apprenticeship Awards. Each and every apprentice, not only the winners, are a credit to themselves, their employers and their families and I commend them all.”
The winners will be chosen by our panel of judges including Zena, alongside James Harkness, National Open College Network, Kate Barber, Chesterfield College and Rob Hollingworth, Managing Editor The Star/Telegraph/Doncaster Free Press.
