RECOGNISING THE NATION'S TOP APPRENTICESHIP EMPLOYERS IN 2020
Employing apprentices is a productive and effective way for any organisation to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. More than 100,000 organisations in England are now apprenticeship employers.
Top employers, who are helping to lead an 'apprenticeship revolution' and getting more people into skilled jobs, will now be recognised in a new national ranking of the leading employers of apprentices.
The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers celebrates the country’s outstanding apprenticeship employers and will help potential apprentices, parents and careers advisers to easily identify apprenticeship opportunities with high performing employers.
Employers, large and small, will be recognised for their overall commitment to employing apprentices, their creation of new apprenticeships, the diversity of their new apprentices, and the progression of their apprentices onto further apprenticeships and employment.
Beginning in 2020, the annual rankings will showcase the nation’s Top 100 larger employers, as well as the Top 50 SME employers, that have done the most to provide successful apprenticeships over the previous 12 months.
The new rankings have been developed in partnership with High Fliers Research, who will independently assess and compile the new national leader board of top apprenticeship employers.
Apprenticeship employers in every industry and employment sector – from accountancy, fashion and law, to teaching, nursing and engineering – are invited to enter for the rankings.
Entries for 2020 opened on Thursday 12th March and will close on Thursday 9th April, with the results announced at a special launch event for apprenticeship employers in the summer of 2020.
