Celebrating the contribution of Apprenticeships to business

Open for entries

Welcome to the 2022 Dorset Apprenticeship Awards.

The Dorset Apprenticeship Awards, delivered by Dorset Chamber in association with the Dorset and Somerset Training Provider Network and sponsored by Superior Seals, celebrates the hugely important contribution that apprentices make to business in Dorset. The awards also celebrate the personal achievements of apprentices and the impact of the apprenticeship programme on lives. The awards are free to enter and we invite applications from apprentices and their employers from across the county.

Each finalist, along with two guests and their employer will be invited to an awards celebration lunch on 18th May 2022 at Superior Seals Training Academy, Ferndown and will be presented with their trophy by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset on behalf of Her Majesty. The event will also be attended by local dignitaries. Each winner will also be profiled in the Dorset Business Focus magazine.
