In addition we have many pioneering and committed businesses who recruit apprentices, and drive forward the apprenticeship agenda for the success of the region. This awards ceremony is an opportunity to recognise the combined efforts of these apprentices and apprentice employers, and to celebrate the positive impact they have in Liverpool City Region.”
