Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2021 deadline extended

The deadline for Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2021 entries and nominations has been extended to midnight (Monday night) on Monday 8th February 2021 to allow a bit more time for you to get your entries and nominations in.

This is to allow businesses a bit more time to put themselves and their apprentices forward. We know that it’s not business as usual for many employers in terms of Apprenticeships, but this is a fantastic way to focus on something positive at a difficult time - showcase your business, celebrate the achievements of your star Apprentices - and former Apprentices - and recognise the dedication of the colleagues who support them.
