Apprenticeship Awards

Join us for the virtual 2023 Apprenticeship Awards taking place on Thursday 8 February at 4pm.

Introducing our Apprenticeship Awards 2023

Apprenticeships are a huge part of Blackpool and The Fylde College’s technical and professional provision, allowing people to develop their career, while working towards a nationally-recognised qualification.

For employers, apprenticeships provide a committed and highly skilled workforce.

Our Apprenticeship Awards recognise the outstanding achievement of apprentices and employers alike and celebrate their very real contribution to the nation’s upskilling and economic prosperity.
