Business Awards Nominations Now OPEN Until 28th March
20 February 2023 – 28 March 2023 09:00 – 16:00
This year’s event takes place at the Winter Gardens on Thursday 15th June, and will celebrate the excellence of our apprentices, trainees, and learners that completed an industry placement - as well as recognising the work of our business network. We welcome nominations for anyone that you feel is deserving of recognition for the work they have completed in the last year.
You can nominate if you are:
- A Weston College learner (apprentice, trainee, industry placement learner)
- The manager/employer of the apprentice
- A Weston College member of staff
- A business that goes the extra mile in providing opportunities for our learners.
If you think the learner, or business has already been nominated, don’t worry! If we receive multiple entries for the same person/business it strengthens the case for that entrant to win.
All entries will then be looked at by our judges and shortlisted on their merits. Judges will be looking for learners who display professional and personal progression, so remember to include evidence of this in the application.
Any shortlisted businesses will receive 2 complimentary tickets to the ceremony.
Shortlisted learners will be invited to the ceremony and will receive two complimentary tickets to bring family or friends. Apprentices will also be accompanied by their nominator, assessor and an invite will be sent to their manager/employer.
The winners will be announced at the event on Thursday 15th June.
