On the search for Plymouth’s Construction Apprentices of the Year 2020

Building Plymouth has officially launched the search to find Plymouth’s top Trade and Technical Construction Apprentices of 2020.

These annual awards recognise the importance of the construction and built environment industry for Plymouth and the part that employers and their apprentices play in ‘Building Plymouth’. The awards also seek to acknowledge the apprentice’s exceptional contribution to their workplace, and appreciate their commitment to the Apprenticeship experience.

2020 will see two overall winners recognised – a Trade Construction Apprentice of the Year and a Technical Construction Apprentice of the Year. Ron Simmonds was a former Alderman and Mayor of the City, and trained as an apprentice bricklayer – the trade trophy pays tribute to the contribution he has made to Plymouth. The technical shield was added in 2017 to celebrate the technical and higher level apprentices within construction and the built environment in Plymouth.

Nominations are open to Plymouth residents (with home postcodes within the Plymouth City Council boundary), employed within the local construction and built environment sector who are working towards an Apprenticeship Programme (any level or specialism), or who have completed an Apprenticeship during the calendar year 2019. There are no age restrictions.

· The closing date for entries – 5pm on Friday 22 November 2019
