BirminghamLive Apprenticeship Awards 2020
The first Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards took place last year in July and celebrated the best and brightest learners and the people who are helping them to succeed. We are partnering with the Ladder for Greater Birmingham campaign which launched in 2018 to create 1,000 new apprenticeships in Birmingham and Solihull – more information can be found here.
After the nomination closing date, three finalists will be shortlisted within each category by the judging panel. The winners will then be announced at the virtual awards, which will be streamed live on BirminghamLive on Friday, November 27 at 7pm. The event will be hosted by Ed James and feature special guests, interactive activities and prize giveaways.

Ladder for Greater Birmingham and Solihull
The Ladder for Greater Birmingham was launched at a time when the levy reforms had been introduced and apprenticeship numbers were declining. They are very grateful that key partners such as the Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP, Provider Network, Chamber of Commerce and of course Reach who bought into their vision and helped make the Greater Birmingham Ladder happen.
Some 18 months on, the Ladder has achieved nearly 1,500 starts, have engaged with numerous employers and schools, and are heavily involved in working with partners such as the West Midlands Combined Authority on the levy transfer and Birmingham & Solihull LEP with the Skills HUB and triage.
The enthusiasm from partners with regards to our second Ladder awards, albeit virtual, has been fantastic and with over 150 applications submitted confirms their belief there is a requirement for an annual apprenticeship awards in Birmingham. This hopefully will be another Ladder legacy.
