CII Apprenticeship Awards Enter by 12th May

The CII is inviting nominations for its inaugural Apprenticeship Awards. These prestigious awards will celebrate the achievements of exceptional apprentices from across the UK in seven categories – including three from the general insurance profession – with winners receiving cash prizes of up to £1,000 funded by the CII’s Education and Training Trust.

The CII Apprenticeship Awards are open to all apprentices in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales that meet the awards criteria, which include achieving a CII qualification as part of successfully completing an apprenticeship standard or framework. Nominations are welcome from employers, training providers and apprentices themselves.

The general insurance categories are:

  • Insurance Practitioner Apprentice of the Year – Level 3 (£500)
  • Insurance Professional Apprentice of the Year – Level 4 (£800)
  • Senior insurance Professional Apprentice of the Year – Level 6 (£1000)

Announcing the awards, CII president, Russell Higginbotham, said: “I am delighted to launch these new awards, which build on the great success of other programmes we already run to encourage young people to join the insurance and personal finance professions, including our Next Gen initiative. I hope employers, training providers and apprentices themselves are excited to enter these awards and see them as a prestigious acknowledgment of the time, energy and hard work they invest in studying for their CII qualifications and broader apprenticeship.”

Winners will be presented with their awards at an event to be held later in the year.

Nominations are now open and will close on 12 May 2023.
