The Ladder for Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards 2019

The Ladder for Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards 2019 will celebrate the best apprentices and their employers working across the Greater Birmingham region.

We have received nominations from the stars of the future working in fields as diverse as manufacturing, creative industries, finance and the public sector who will be the next generation of leaders.

The awards are a celebration of the best and brightest young learners and the people who are helping them to succeed. The deadline to enter has now passed but we will be announcing the shortlist across 12 separate categories on Monday 13th May.

Tickets to join us at the award ceremony on Thursday July 4 at Edgbaston Stadium are on sale now.

This event is run in partnership between BirminghamLive and Ladder for Greater Birmingham, an ambitious initiative launched in 2018 to create 1,000 new apprenticeships in Birmingham and Solihull.

To find out more and keep up to date with any news on the Awards, please visit the BirminghamLive website.
