Leeds City Council searching for top apprentices



Nominations have opened for the Leeds Apprenticeship Awards 2014.

The city is set to host the third Apprenticeship Awards, with the event highlighting the work of excellent apprentices and those organisations who are committed to offering quality apprenticeships and make such a positive difference.

The ceremony will take place at the Civic Hall on March 4 during National Apprenticeship Week when the city will be holding a number of events to inform young people and businesses of the benefits gained through apprenticeships.

Partners including Leeds City Council, Leeds City College, Appris, BPP Professional Education, ESG group and the National Apprenticeship Service launched the nominations for Leeds Apprenticeship Awards 2014 this week.

Individuals and organisations are encouraged to submit their entries before the closing date of January 24.

Coun Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council executive board member with responsibilities for leisure and skills said: “Our awards are a fantastic way of recognising the achievements of apprentices and of increasing the profile of apprenticeships and I am very much looking forward to the event next year.”
