Nominations are still open on the inaugural Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards.
Organised by Truro and Penwith College, the awards are a celebration of individual and business achievement within the Cornish business community.
With hundreds of new apprentices starting in the last year, Truro and Penwith College says it has seen an increase of 60% in the numbers of people starting an apprenticeship compared with 2013/14.
The popularity is spread across sectors, with considerable growth in non-traditional areas such as management (162%) and customer service (128%), as well as in apprenticeships within the ever-expanding hospitality sector, which has seen a huge 290% increase from 2013/14.
Closing date for nominations is Wednesday, September 16, with the winners announced at a black-tie ceremony in October. For more details, click here.
