The results of the tight competition were announced on 10th December at The Belfry, near Sutton Coldfield in the Midlands in front of 175 guests from across the industry over a festive lunch.
The training companies and colleges nominate their trainees for the awards and benefit from funding from money raised at the event. Since it started as the Fred Jamieson Memorial Lunch, the Awards have raised over £25,000. The money has been invested back into helping provide the best training resources for trainees and apprentices.
This year the ACR Trainee of the Year Awards raised around £4,000.
