Celebrating our amazing local apprentices - and the businesses that support them

Apprentices offer so much to the firms they work with

The Derbyshire Times, along with our sister titles, wants to honour the ground-breaking efforts of apprentices, apprentice employers and the wonderful training providers who support them.

With close to a million active apprenticeships across England alone, apprenticeship schemes have fast become a route to future employment for thousands of school leavers. These awards, now in their third year, recognise and reward both the apprentices and their employers that are excelling across the Sheffield City Region.

Headline Sponsor Amazon in Doncaster is delighted to be supporting the 2019 SCR Apprenticeship Awards which will recognise the best emerging talent across all industries.

At the start of this year’s National Apprenticeship Week, Amazon UK announced the creation of 1,000 new apprenticeships for new and existing employees in fulfilment centres, development centres and the company’s corporate office.

Stuart Morgan, the General Manager of Amazon’s fulfilment centre on Doncaster’s iPort said: “It’s great to be able to celebrate the achievements of the best emerging talent across our region. We want to give people opportunities to succeed in the digital age, regardless of their background.”

The awards will be celebrated at a special event held at the Hilton Garden Inn, Doncaster, held on Thursday 27th June

Guests will enjoy a drinks reception, canapes and deluxe 2 course meal, entertainment, as well the awards themselves - which promise to have you on your feet as we celebrate the apprenticeship stars of Sheffield City Region.
