Celebrating all that is great about training, apprenticeships and skills in Wales.

Here at Cambrian Training, we work with some great employers and learners throughout Wales delivering work-based apprenticeship programmes on behalf of the Welsh Government.

Each and every business and apprentice have their own story to tell, so to celebrate this we hold our very own annual awards event.

Our Apprenticeship Awards recognise individuals and employers across Wales who have excelled within the apprenticeship programmes we deliver on behalf of the Welsh Government.

The Awards highlight the achievements of those who have exceeded expectations with their engagement and commitment to the apprenticeship programme and shown a unique approach to training and development, with an ability to demonstrate initiative and enterprise, innovation and creativity.

The winners of each award will be revealed at a special awards dinner held in the The Metropole luxury hotel and spa in Llandrindod Wells on the evening of Wednesday, 22nd May 2024

The winners of our awards also have the opportunity to be put forward, with the support of Cambrian Training to enter the prestigious Apprenticeship Awards Cymru. The Apprenticeship Awards Cymru are run jointly by the National Training Federation of Wales and the Welsh Government.
