This annual event recognises the outstanding contribution and achievements our exceptional Apprentices from across Lancashire and South Cumbria have made over the last year.
Taking place at fabulous Winter Gardens, Blackpool on Friday 28th June, the Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Health and Social Care Apprenticeship Awards 2024 celebrate the very best Apprentices currently undertaking an Apprenticeship, and still employed, within Lancashire & South Cumbria in an NHS or Social Care qualifying organisation.
Nominations for any of the 11 categories can be made by the employer, training provider or the Apprentice themselves. Please note, the Rising Star category is also open to T Level students in their final year.
Dress code for the evening is black-tie.
Are you an education provider who has an outstanding Apprentice working within our Trusts, Community, Primary Care or Social Care?
Do you manage or work alongside an Apprentice who deserves recognition for their approach and commitment to their role?
As an Apprentice, can you demonstrate exceptional achievements or performance outcomes?
Take a look at our award categories to nominate yourself or an Apprentice for a 2024 Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Health and Social Care Apprenticeship Award.
This award will recognise organisations who have a strong commitment to employing, nurturing and supporting Apprentices and currently have Apprentices working for them. In this category, we want to hear about the impact an organisation has made to you as an Apprentice.
Strong applications will include specific details and evidence of what the Apprentice has done to substantiate their answers.
Judges want to hear about exemplar Apprentices who can clearly evidence the positive difference they have made to the organisation they work in. This evidence should include examples which demonstrate inspirational qualities, a commitment to personal development and the outstanding contribution the Apprentice has made to their workplace.
It is advisable that Apprentices who submit their own application should:
Use plain English and avoid jargon
Seek assistance from their employer and learning provider to ensure the answers are completed as comprehensively as possible
Where possible, ask their employer or learning provider to complete the required reference
The referee should consider:
How the Apprentice has demonstrated commitment to their own personal development and progression
The benefits the Apprentice brings to the organisation
Any inspirational qualities and outstanding contributions
Clear examples of achievements and attainments in learning and work
