The deadline to enter the Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards 2020 is fast approaching.

There are now just over three weeks to submit your nominations for this year’s event which is run by our sister website BirminghamLive in partnership with the Ladder for Greater Birmingham apprenticeship campaign.

The annual event will be held online only this year in November as a result of the coronavirus restrictions and the deadline for entries is September 18.

There are also still opportunities for commercial partners to get involved in the ceremony as an event sponsor.

BirminghamLive editor Anna Jeys said: “We have already welcomed some excellent nominations but we’re looking forward to receiving even more in the final three weeks before deadline passes.

“These awards will shine a light on the growing strength of the city region’s apprenticeship movement.

“Even though we can’t hold a ceremony in person, we know the evening will still be a stellar celebration of our region’s apprentices, their employers and those training providers helping them to succeed.”

The Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards are back for a second year, in partnership with the Ladder for Greater Birmingham. The event will be held online only on Friday November 27, 2020 and will celebrate apprentices, employers and training and education providers.

The awards are free and easy to enter via our online form which can be found here along with those all-important T&Cs. The deadline for entries is Friday September 18.

If you have any questions about entering or the awards in general, please email and contact or if you would like to learn more about becoming a commercial partner of the awards.
