Apprentice of the Year
Gold, Silver, Bronze winners
The Apprentice of the Year Award recognises and celebrates the significant contribution made by an apprentice within their organisation in the healthcare sector.

Nominators must complete the nomination form, which includes no more than 500 words about the nominee, demonstrating four of the criteria.
The nomination process takes approximately 10-15 minutes. We would recommend reviewing the questions and returning with your responses. You can click ‘Save and continue later’ at any time during the nomination, in the top right-hand corner of the screen in the nomination form.
As part of the nomination, we ask for some simple information about you, such as your name, job title and contact details. This is so we can let you know if your nominee is successful in winning an award, and so we can verify the nomination. We also ask for some information about your nominee, including their name, job title, contact details, an overview of what they do and why they are being nominated, and an answer to a few questions which relate to the award criteria shown in the bullet points above.
If you have any questions about what’s involved in the nomination process, please email OHHAwards@skillsforhealth.org.uk
