Digital Degree Apprentices – nominations now open for Tech Industry Gold Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2021 National Tech Industry Gold Degree Apprenticeship Awards.

These new awards recognise the fantastic contribution digital degree apprenticeships make to building the future for individuals and organisations. There are awards in three categories – business contribution, innovation, and special achievement – and winners will be announced at the online Building Tech Futures event being run by Tech Partnership Degrees and techUK during National Apprenticeship Week (8th – 14th February 2021).

So, if you know a digital degree apprentice who has stood out by making an impact for their company, demonstrating their innovative streak, or doing something else unique which should be celebrated, we would love to hear from you. Anyone can submit a nomination, including digital degree apprentices themselves – so please don’t be shy, and share that story!

The only entry criterion is that the nominee was on, or graduated from, a Tech Industry Gold accredited digital degree apprenticeship during 2020, and all we need is up to 300 words supporting the nomination.

All entries must be submitted by 17:00, Friday 29th January 2021
