Celebrating apprenticeships

This year for our second ever Built Environment Apprenticeship Awards we were delighted to host face-to-face awards presentation and networking event.

We received so many fantastic nominations for our apprentices and the employer representatives who support them, it was a tough job of narrowing them down.
