Local authority apprentices required! APSE Housing and Building Apprentice of the Year Awards 2022

Specific to local authority frontline service areas, the awards scheme is open to candidates from all stages of training and have been running successfully for over 20 years. The awards are open to every authority and their partner organisations in the UK.

Entry to the awards is free of charge and successfully short-listed candidates, and the local authorities they represent, receive individual awards to recognise the achievements of both the apprentice and the employer.
We will be running three award categories at this ceremony:-

  • Mechanical and Electrical (E.g. Plumbers, Electricians, Gas Fitters)
  • Building Skills (E.g. Bricklayers, Joiners, Plasterers)
  • Professional Services (E.g. Architects, Designers)

APSE is an avid supporter of bringing women into construction and show-casing successful women apprentices is one way of encouraging more women to join the construction industry as well as councils actively supporting the recruitment of women into construction apprenticeships. We strongly encourage applicant councils to ensure women are represented in your apprentice submissions.
The finalists will be contacted directly and then announced on the APSE website.

The award ceremony will take place at the APSE Building Maintenance and Repairs Seminar 2022, Crewe Hall Hotel & Spa, Weston Road, Crewe CW1 6UZ. 

If you need further information please contact Mike Egerton, Marketing & Coordination Officer, at megerton@apse.org.uk
