Nominations can be submitted by the apprentice themselves, their employer, college or training provider or even by a proud family member.

We are searching for apprentice employers and training providers who embrace equality and diversity in their apprenticeship programme. Do you provide excellent commitment to actively develop an inclusive workplace for apprenticeships – where fairness, respect, equality, dignity, and autonomy are at the forefront of their values and promoted as part of their everyday goals and behaviour? Then enter the Diversity and Inclusion Award and share your success.

This award is sponsored by University of Nottingham whose degree apprenticeship programme offers vocationally focused academic study at bachelor's and master's level through flexible learning.

The awards honour apprentices and the firms they work for

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony held at The Village Hotel, Nottingham on Thursday 6th October, where guests will be invited to join us from 6.45pm for a welcome drink sponsored by The Village Hotel.

Guests will be served a selection of canapes as they enjoy the opportunity to network with other attendees. Followed by a 2 course meal and the awards ceremony and entertainment.
