Apprenticeship Awards Cymru 2017
A dynamic approach to training and skills development by employers and learning providers across Wales, and inspirational individual success stories were celebrated at this year’s prestigious Apprenticeship Awards Cymru.
The awards ceremony, held at Celtic Manor, Newport, brought together the best of learners, employers and training providers from across Wales, who have excelled in contributing to the development of the Welsh Government’s Traineeship and Apprenticeship programmes, part funded through the European Social Fund.
30 star learners, employers and learning providers involved in the delivery of a range of successful skills programmes across Wales were shortlisted for the prestigious awards with 11 winners. Jointly organised by the Welsh Government and the National Training Federation for Wales (NTfW), the awards are sponsored by Pearson PLC and supported by media partner, Media Wales.
Benefits of being an apprentice:
- Apprentices do real jobs for employers, so as an apprentice you are paid while you learn
- You have support from both your employer and training provider
- Employers and training providers will make sure your training is giving you the skills that you
need for the job
So, if earning while you learn appeals to you, ‘What is an Apprenticeship?’ will give you information about apprenticeships including the different levels of qualification, how long they last and how to apply for an apprenticeship.
