Launching the inaugural Apprentice of the Year awards! Closing date for nominations 30 June 2022 #GenerationApprenticeship


Nominations can now be made for the 2022 Apprentice of the Year using this nomination form.  Launched today by Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD and organised by the National Apprenticeship Office under the #GenerationApprenticeship banner, the awards will recognise and celebrate apprentices who are driving new career standards of leadership, teamwork, creativity & problem-solving, regardless of their industry.

How to enter

Nominations can be made in advance of Thursday 30 June 2022 by a company, college, region, consortium, peer or individual via the online nomination form. In general there should only be a single nomination per apprentice. An organisation/individual may however nominate multiple apprentices. Apprentices must be currently completing an apprenticeship at the time of being nominated.


An independent panel of judges will adjudicate on the awards after the closing date for nominations has passed, with an awards ceremony planned for Autumn 2022. Nominated apprentices will be assessed on their contributions in leadership, teamwork, creativity and problem-solving.
