The North West’s Best Aerospace & Defence Apprentice Awards are part of the annual New Talent Awards which are organised by the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA).

The aims of the awards are to raise the profile of the aerospace sector and recognise the achievements made by apprentices working in aerospace in the North West Aerospace Industry.

Nominations are now closed – if you have an apprentice who you wish to nominate but have missed the closing date please contact Catherine to discuss.

The competition is open to all final year and HNC apprentices working in aerospace or defence in the North West, with a cash prize of £1000 being awarded to the winner and £500 to the runner up. Training providers, colleges and employers in the North West are invited to nominate apprentices who meet the set criteria. 

All candidates will be invited for a 45 minute interview with the judging panel at the NWAA office details to be confirmed shortly. During this interview the candidates will be asked to present a project that demonstrates the development of their engineering skills during their apprenticeship.
