Cambrian Training Apprenticeship, Employment & Skills Awards

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 a range of training, apprenticeship, skills and employment training programmes on behalf of the Welsh Government.

Each and every business, apprentice or learner has their own story and achievement to tell, so to celebrate this we have decided to launch our own awards.

Our Apprenticeship Awards competition rewards individuals and employers who have excelled in the vocational learning and training programmes we deliver on behalf of the Welsh Government; Jobs Growth Wales and/or Apprenticeship programmes across Wales.

These Awards will celebrate the achievements of those who have exceeded expectations during their engagement and commitment to the training & skills programmes and shown a unique approach to training, development, ability to demonstrate initiative and enterprise, innovation and creativity. The Awards will highlight the outstanding achievements of the employers and individuals involved in everything from Jobs Growth Wales to apprenticeship training, throughout North, Mid, South and West Wales.
