Recognising the nation's top apprenticeship employers in 2022
ENTRIES CLOSED: Entries for the 2022 rankings are now closed.
The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers celebrates England’s outstanding apprenticeship employers and helps future apprentices, parents and careers advisers to identify apprenticeship opportunities at the country’s leading employers.
First launched in 2020, the 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.
The rankings weren't produced in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but they're back in 2022 to showcase the apprenticeship employers that have done the most to provide successful apprenticeships over the last 12 months.
And new for 2022, England's top small and medium-sized employers are being featured for the first time in the Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers.
Employers will be recognised for their commitment to employing apprentices, their creation of new apprenticeships, the diversity of their new apprentices, and the number of apprentices who complete their apprenticeships and progress further with the employer.
Together, the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers and Top 50 SME Apprenticeship Employers will reveal which employers – large and small – are the country's top apprenticeship employers for 2022.
UPDATE: Hundreds of apprenticeship employers from across England have already successfully entered for this year’s rankings. To give those employers who've yet to enter a little more time to prepare their entries, the final entry deadline is now Thursday 14th April.
An introductory video explains more about the 2022 rankings and the entry process. The new rankings will be announced during a special live broadcast in the summer.
