The 2020 awards received 140,893 impressions on the @apprenticesIrl Twitter account and was the top performing content across other social channels. The awards were widely promoted and supported via a number of mailers, trade, newspaper articles and by Ministers Simon Harris TD, Niall Collins TD, and other stakeholders.

2021 has been another really challenging year for apprenticeship employers as the pandemic restrictions continued to affect businesses and livelihoods around the country. The 2021 Generation Apprenticeship Employer of the Year awards will recognise and celebrate employers who stand out for their resilience and their willingness to embrace innovation as part of their survival strategies over the past year, in particular as they supported their apprentices in-training.

The 2021 Employer of the Year awards is designed to operate in two stages:
Stage 1* is regional, among employers grouped within the nine Regional Skills areas. The regional winners will then go on to a national stage (Stage 2).
*Subject to the number of entries/nominations received.
