AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2020 deadline extended

The deadline for the 2020 FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards has been extended due to demand.

The application window is open for another seven days for entries to the route awards category and the national awards category; which includes apprenticeship diversity, outstanding contribution to the development of apprenticeships, and apprentice provider and employer of the year.

Shane Mann, managing director of FE Week publisher Lsect, said: “These awards are an excellent opportunity to celebrate the incredible work in the apprenticeship sector that is being carried out by both employers and providers.

“It is not too late to put them forward for the chance to receive some well-deserved, and well-overdue, recognition for providing world-class apprenticeship learning opportunities for people across the UK.”

This is the third year the awards have been running and after the success of last year’s awards in Birmingham, which were attended by more than 500 people, the event will be returning to the city’s ICC alongside the Annual Apprenticeship Conference and Exhibition.

Winners included the Royal Air Force, which took home apprentice employer of the year, AELP chair Martin Dunford won the lifetime achievement prize, while apprentice provider of the year went to In-Comm Training.

The AAC conference will take place between 2 and 3 March next year.
