The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2020 will recognise Englandâ€™s very best employers of apprentices, from a wide range of industries and employment sectors.
To enter, employers must have 250 employees or more and employ a minimum of 25 apprentices in England.
Employers will complete a short entry form, providing the following information about their organisation:
- the number of apprentices that were employed in England in March 2020, at all levels of apprenticeships from level 2 to level 7
- how many apprentices started an apprenticeship during the year to 31st March 2020
- the diversity of apprentices who began apprenticeships in the past year
- the number of apprentices who successfully completed their apprenticeships in the past year
This data will then be independently verified, assessed and weighted according to the size of the employerâ€™s workforce, to provide a score for each entrant.
The employers with the highest scores will be ranked in The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2020, which will be announced later in the year.
