    The Apprentice of the Year Excellence Award

    This award recognises the contribution of apprentices across the housing sector. The winner of this award will have demonstrated their commitment to personal development with achievement and attainment in learning. Through their contributions in the workplace, nominees should demonstrate that they have exceeded expectations and made a difference to the organisation that they work in. They will also be able to provide evidence of approaching day to day work with a positive outlook and demonstrating a willingness to be creative and innovative. Judges will look for:

    • A summary of the individual’s role and their career history in housing
    • An explanation of how the individual has developed as a result of their learning and as an apprentice
    • How the individual has shown dedication and drive to enable them to make an impact within the organisation
    • A statement of how the apprentice has demonstrated a positive and willing outlook to their role, supported by evidence of how they have been creative and innovative in their day to day work

    Who is eligible?

    The award is open to any applicant undertaking an apprenticeship scheme or traineeship in any discipline and working in any part of the housing sector.
