Apprenticeships and trainee employees are a very important aspect of a business and at this year’s Bury Free Press Business Awards, this will be recognised once again.

The apprentice/trainee of the year category celebrates how apprenticeships and trainees have made a difference to their business and their careers.

The award will be sponsored by WS Training, which has sponsored the event since the Bury Free Press launched the business awards in 2012. WS Training is a Suffolk-based training provider with centres in Bury and Ipswich.

Jane Wood, chief executive, said: “The judges will be looking for an apprentice or trainee who has demonstrated a commitment to their personal development and progression. The winner will be someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the workplace in particular areas or projects, where they have exceeded the employer’s expectations – a person who has demonstrated inspirational levels of achievement and attainment inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.”

With the government changing how apprenticeships are funded and introducing an apprenticeship levy last year, more businesses than ever are taking on apprentices and spending time with trainees.

Last year’s winner was Abigail Johnson, from West Suffolk Physio. Abigail impressed judges with her knowledge of administration processes. They agreed she had the motivation and initiative of someone much more experienced.
