The finalists in the first NMSY Apprenticeship Awards have been announced.
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 May 16.
Zena Wardle, from headline sponsor Polypipe, said “I felt privileged to be a part of the judging panel for the first year of the NMSY Apprenticeship Awards.
"I was astounded by the number of entrants and also the high standards and enthusiasm displayed.
"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 picked by a panel of judges including Zena, alongside Heather Smith, Frances Bishop, Charles Ricketts, David Higham and Steve Cressey.
Tickets for the award ceremony, including Prosecco and canapes on arrival and an aftershow party and buffet, can be bought for £40 per head until midnight on Friday.
