For this year's Apprenticeship Awards, the National Apprenticeship Service, in partnership with City & Guilds, will be listing England's Top 100 Apprenticeship employers. As well as four employer category winners, the 24 best other employers in each category will be honoured in the published Top 100 Apprenticeship employers list.
John Hayes, minister of state for further education, skills and lifelong learning said: "I have put Apprenticeships at the heart of our skills strategy because they encourage ambition and enterprise, and help drive economic and social progress.
"These awards offer a great platform for young people and employers to gain recognition not just for excelling in their chosen field, but for playing a leading part in that vital process."
Simon Waugh, chief executive of the National Apprenticeship Service said: "The Apprenticeship Awards recognise the achievements of individuals engaged in training and the organisations that invest in them.
"Apprentices provide a real boost to Britain's economy, helping businesses secure a supply of people with the skills and qualities often not available on the external job market. They bring fresh ideas and innovation to organisations and help to increase staff retention."
