The Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards 2020 will celebrate achievement among individuals, their employers and education and training providers.
Our event this year is run in partnership with Ladder for Greater Birmingham, a campaign which is working to create hundreds of new apprenticeships across the region.
The awards will be held online In November as a result of the coronavirus crisis but will still be a stellar celebration of the apprenticeship movement in Greater Birmingham.
There will be 12 separate categories including crowning our overall Apprentice of the Year and here we focus on one of the six individual awards to be presented on the night.

Outstanding Apprentice of the Year (Professional Services), sponsored by Performance Through People
Birmingham has the most thriving professional services sector outside London and although not a field traditionally associated with apprenticeships that culture is changing. Applicants could be working for a big accountancy firm, a small creative agency or anything in between with judges looking for personal development and an ability to work with clients across all types of different projects and briefs.
Last year’s winner in this category, then called ‘Financial and Business Services’, was Freya Lyndon from Adecco Group UK. She joined Adecco in 2017 to work in its contact centre and deal with contractor issues. The role enhanced her customer-centric skills and she later became a fundamental part of the refocusing team, even coaching long-serving staff members.
