There are three categories that apprentices can enter:
• Heating (sponsored by HHIC)
• Plumbing (sponsored be BMA)
• Vulnerability (sponsored by CIPHE)
The adjudicators for the awards will be Tracey Richardson and Tony Kite, who are both involved in vocational training and are members of the Institute’s Training & Education Group. They will review photographic evidence and testimonials from lecturers, employers and customers.
Winners will be invited to a special Awards Luncheon at the House of Commons on 17 November, where they will be presented with their prizes.
Kevin Wellman, CEO said:
“The CIPHE has launched its own awards initiative to help raise the profile of apprenticeships by recognising both the technical and ‘soft’ skills of young people starting out in the trade. These awards seek to champion professionalism and best practice at apprentice level and we are appealing to anyone who might be working with an apprentice - from business owners to colleges - to get in touch and enter.”
