Project Description

Apprentice of the Year – Sponsored by Knowsley Council

Located in the heart of the North West, between Liverpool and Manchester, Knowsley is home to 147,000 residents and around 3,900 businesses.

The council has many responsibilities from delivering day to day services from health and social care, maintaining highways and building new homes, to improving educational attainment, attracting investment and creating employment opportunities.

One of the council’s key priorities is to accelerate business growth in the borough and to support residents to develop the skills they need to secure jobs.

The Council has a long standing commitment to apprenticeships and was one of the first in the country to deliver a dedicated apprenticeship programme. Since its launch in 2003 some 1,200 apprenticeships have been created in partnership with our business community.  The Council is proud to be sponsoring the Apprentice of the Year Award to showcase apprentices in Knowsley who have made impressive progress in their career.
