Run jointly by the Worshipful Company of Horners and the British Plastics Federation Education & Skills Committee, the deadline for the 2021 Polymer Industries Apprentice of the Year Award has been extended to December 3.
The Polymer Apprentice of the Year Award aims to recognise the commitment and achievement of apprentices in the polymer industry and to encourage and support them in their development.
The award is for apprentices involved in a technical, engineering, manufacturing, or design role associated with polymer processing or polymer/additive manufacturing. Nominations can be made either by the apprentice themselves, their employers, or training providers. In order to be considered for the award, the person must:
- Be engaged in – or have completed in the year up until December 2021 – a full accredited apprenticeship programme at level 3
- Have had sufficient time in their apprenticeship to be able to demonstrate quantifiable achievement, both academic and in the workplace
Nominations can be submitted up to Friday, December 3, 2021. An adjudicating panel will assess the finalists via remote interview, and the winner will be notified by Christmas this year. The winner will be invited to attend the Livery Companies Skills Council Apprentice Certificate Ceremony in February 2022, in London, where they will receive a prize of £500 and a ceremonial drinking horn, along with the Horners’ Apprentice Certificate from the Lord Mayor of London.
