The Worcestershire Apprenticeships Awards have returned in 2021.

After the absence of the awards last year due to the challenges presented by COVID-19, this year’s awards received a large amount of nominations across the 6 categories, including entries for the new Apprentice Resilience Award.

This year’s awards are being delivered in a new virtual format across three days, the 16th, 17th and 18th of November 2021.

Each of these three days will focus on a different set of awards, the episodes will also feature updates on the impact and challenges for Apprenticeships in the county, and what the Worcestershire LEP, County Council and partners across the county are doing to support Apprenticeships in the future.

Below you can find a graphic which breakdowns the episodes, including the speakers for each day and then below that links to the watch the broadcasts live each day.
