Employers Guidance Document

Open to employers of all sizes from all sectors, the Apprenticeship Employer of the Year Award recognises employers who can demonstrate their commitment and contribution to apprenticeships, and the success that apprentices have brought to their organisation.

The categories acknowledge the different approaches taken to apprenticeships by organisations of different sizes:

  • SME Employer of the Year (for organisations with 1 to 249 employees)
  • Large Employer of the Year (for organisations with 250 to 4,999 employees)
  • Macro Employer of the Year (for organisations with 5,000+ employees)
