The North East Apprenticeship Awards 2023

July 19, 2023

St James’ Park played host to the inaugural North East Apprenticeship Awards, showcasing and celebrating a diverse range of skilled apprentices and supporters of apprenticeships across the region.

With 14 awards up for grabs, brilliant individuals and apprenticeship providers came together to recognise regional talent and those who shape help their future, as well as encourage more businesses to support apprenticeships by showcasing the many benefits.
