The Royal Navy employs more than 30,000 sailors, including over 5,500 apprentices on 21 different apprenticeship programmes.
In times of peace and conflict, the Royal Navy is key to Britain’s prosperity and success and all the tasks they undertake include Royal Navy apprentices. They recognise the importance of world class, relevant training by investing into training establishments which deliver suitably trained personnel to the front line of operations, wherever they may be.
The Royal Navy will be presenting the Health & Public Service Apprentice of the Year Award and join us in welcoming entries into this category, which is open to apprentices working within either the Health or Public Service Sector.
Your entry can be completed by either the apprentice or their employer, but needs to have been enrolled on an apprenticeship scheme before June 2021. Key information that the judges will be looking for are the contribution that the individual has made throughout their apprenticeship showing their commitment and attitude to the role along with details of their qualifications either working towards achieving and or already achieved.
