Highways Awards 2023 – Apprentice of the Year Award

  • Monday June 19, 2023

The Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) is proudly sponsoring the Highways Awards 2023 Apprentice of the Year category.

This year marks a milestone for the Highways Awards and for the IHE as its legacy sponsor – 20 years of celebrating the good and the great from across the sector and championing those, such as yourselves, that keep Britain moving.

As a valued member of the IHE, we would encourage you to submit a nomination for this year’s awards. You may wish to recognise a colleague, product or project from your organisation that has gone above and beyond.

The Apprentice of the Year is awarded to an individual working in the highways industry for the first time who has made a considerable contribution in the workplace. The winning individual will demonstrate exemplary commitment to achieving any personal challenges and will be proactive in progressing their career development. Candidates can be from a formal apprenticeship, a side step into a new area of work or new to the industry at any level.

You can discover all 16 categories – from partnerships to health & wellbeing, new technology to climate resilience, apprentices to community leaders, and much more – and enter free today to reward and celebrate your achievements.

Please note that submitting nominations is free of charge, however your attendance is required at the awards should you be selected as a finalist.

The deadline for receiving entries is 5pm on Friday 14th July 2023.
