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.

This category is for the Apprentice who goes that extra mile, who demonstrates a good working ethos and makes every effort to produce good quality work. They might help and support others in the workplace or perform acts of kindness that are appreciated by others. They may produce additional work to what is expected of their Apprenticeship or job role. It might be that they have adopted an ambassadorial role to be an example to others by inspiring NHS and Social Care Apprenticeships.

How to write a strong application for an NHS Health and Social Care Apprenticeship Award

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.

Apprentices can submit an application for themselves

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

A note for referees

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
