Cornwall Apprenticeship awards open


Truro & Penwith College has opened nominations for the 2022 Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards.

Sixteen categories are now up for grabs, with nominations being accepted on the college’s website.

Any Cornwall-based apprentice or employer is eligible for nomination, regardless of their college or training provider, provided they have been involved in apprenticeship training since June 21 of last year.

Holly Day and Neil Caddy from Pirate FM presented the awards in 2021, with 17-year-old motor vehicle apprentice Lucas Allen from Matt Turner Mechanical Services scooping the coveted Cornwall’s Apprentice of the Year Award.

Winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony on November 18.

College principal Martin Tucker said: “The college is very pleased to open nominations for the 2022 Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards.

“Apprenticeships are a key part of Cornwall’s economic strategy to deliver a high-quality workforce and career opportunities. 2022 is an exciting time for apprenticeships at the college with recent multi-million-pound infrastructure investments aiding curriculum development and boosting future skills.

“For apprenticeships to deliver economically they need to be of the highest quality. The Awards present a perfect opportunity to recognise that quality and we look forward to celebrating county-wide success on 18 November.”
