APPRENTICES and employers across Kirklees have less than a month to enter the 2013 National Apprenticeship Awards.

Nominations close on Friday, April 26, for the awards, which aim to show how apprenticeships are working for a whole range of industries.

This year sees an additional award category – for the best Apprenticeship Employer Newcomer. This award will celebrate employers who began employing apprentices only within the last two years, but can show immediate benefits from doing so.

Other categories cover awards for small, medium, large and macro employers along with intermediate, advanced and higher apprentices. One winner will also be named Apprentice Champion of the Year.

The awards ceremony will take place in November at The Skills Show.
