Entries now open for Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2023

Recognising the nation’s top apprenticeship employers in 2023

The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers celebrates England’s outstanding apprenticeship employers, recognising their commitment to creating new apprenticeships, the diversity of their apprentices, and the number of apprentices who successfully achieve their apprenticeships.

And the Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers features the country’s leading small and medium-sized employers that offer apprenticeship programmes.

First compiled in 2020, the prestigious annual employer rankings have been developed by the Department of Education, in partnership with High Fliers Research, who independently assess and rank the nation’s top apprenticeship employers.

In 2022, more than 550 apprenticeship employers from a wide range of industries and business sectors entered for the rankings – from engineering, manufacturing and technology, to accounting & professional services, health & social care and retailing.

Entries are now open for the 2023 rankings and should be made using the official entry form.

Together, the new rankings will showcase the leading apprenticeship employers – large and small – that have done the most to provide apprenticeship opportunities over the past 12 months..

The entry deadline is Friday 24th March.

The 2023 rankings will be announced during a special live broadcast in the summer, with a celebration lunch at the House of Commons in the autumn for employers ranked in the new Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers and Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers.

Investors in People , UCAS and the University of Nottingham have all helped support the launch of this year’s rankings.
