Over 100 apprentices graduated at the 7th York Apprenticeship Graduation and Awards Ceremony, York Grand Opera House, on the 8 November 2017. The event celebrated the achievements of young people and adults who have successfully completed their apprenticeship qualification and training. 

Graduates received a certificate presented by The York Guilds. Thirty five young people, adults and employers also ran for the 2017 York Apprenticeship Awards which were presented on the night. Co-ordinated by City of York Council’s Skills Team, the awards were first introduced three years ago to recognise the individual and business benefits and excellence in the city’s apprenticeship landscape. A panel of independent judges whittled down the shortlist for five categories:
Apprentice of the Year Under 25 - Smaller Business
Apprentice of the Year Under 25 - Larger Employer
Apprentice of the Year Over 25

And we are pleased to announce that Fera Science Ltd won the Larger Employer of the Year.
