Councillor Lynne Ayres, cabinet member for children’s services, education, skills and the university at Peterborough City Council, said: “I’m delighted the hard work and dedication of apprentices and people supporting them will be formally recognised.

“Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to encourage people into a skilled profession, and I would encourage those seeking a direct route into an industry to really consider this pathway.”

All nominations for the apprenticeship categories must be for current apprentices or those who have completed their apprenticeship in the 12 months from 1 January 2021 and who either live or work in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.
