The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers 2020 will recognise England'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 employer'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.
