  • Would you like to stand out and be recognised amongst your peers?

Then this event is for you!

Don’t miss your chance to shine! The Local Government Apprentice of the Year 2024 is an exciting event providing the opportunity for you to learn, network and showcase your skills, expertise, and initiative. You will work in virtual teams to experience the opportunities, risks, and challenges involved in delivering successful local government services, in a developmental environment.

Each year, the event is themed around a topical issue. Last year’s theme was climate change, and apprentices were supported by development leads to experience the opportunities, risks, and challenges in creating a local response to a global issue.

The Apprentice of the Year was a bit nerve-racking at the start but once you get in to it, its not that bad. You get to meet people all other the country in similar roles and my team won! 

After joining Apprentice of the Year I gained a lot of recognition of my talent; I've been awarded learner of the year and was awarded for runway apprentice awards. 

I would definitely recommend this to other people because its widened my knowledge of the different areas of the council and its created other job opportunities.
