City of Coventry Freemen’s Guild Apprentice of the Year Awards 2016

Posted: 27th of October 2016 by Miro Demo

The City of Coventry Freemen’s Guild has great pleasure in announcing that it is looking for outstanding young people to honour in its’ Apprentice of the Year Awards 2016.

The purpose of the Guild Awards is to celebrate the achievements of local young people who are either apprentices or trainees and who are currently undertaking a contracted training programme linked to a recognised career path. This year, the Guild is looking for two Apprentices of the Year – one in the small/medium employer category (up to 200 employees), and one in the large employer category (over 200 employees).

There will be a maximum of three finalists for each award who will be selected from the total number of applications submitted to the Guild by the closing date of Friday 2nd December 2016.

The finalists will then be invited to meet a panel of judges on Tuesday 10th January 2017 that will select the apprentices who in their opinion qualify for the titles of Apprentice of the Year. In addition, the judges have the option to award The Endeavour Award to a candidate they consider has overcome some considerable difficulty in their life and/or has gone the extra mile to help others.

So far so good. But how about this for a kicker? - The chosen Apprentices of the Year will each receive a cheque for £1,000 - plus a trophy. The other finalists will pick up £100. 

Now that's some incentive for you to get your applications in - or more specifically, for you to encourage your employer organisation to get an application in.

Forms and entry criteria can be found at the Coventry Freemen's Guild website here.

Good luck to all of you who do apply. Winners will be announced in January 2017 at an Awards Dinner to be held in St Mary's Hall.
