The search is underway for the star local employers, learners and trainers who have used technical, practical and vocational qualifications to achieve success. 

The 11th Vocational Qualification (VQ) Awards in Wales offer individuals and organisations the chance to be recognised and rewarded for their commitment, hard work and achievements.

Categories include Employer of the Year, Learner of the Year (Intermediate), Learner of the Year (Higher) and Trainer of the Year, which was introduced successfully for the first time in 2017.

Nominations close on March 2 and the awards ceremony will be held at The Exchange Hotel, Cardiff on May 3 to coincide with VQ Day. For more information about the awards and to download a nomination form, visit https://www.vqday.wales

The VQ Learner Awards recognise learners who clearly demonstrate progression and excellence in vocational studies and have made considerable achievements in their field.

The VQ Employer of the Year Award focuses on employers who promote the value of vocational qualifications in the workplace and make a real contribution to improving the skills and national competitiveness. 

The VQ Trainer of the Year Award recognises individual trainers who have made a telling contribution to supporting learners in the workplace to achieve excellence whilst also constantly improving their own skills and knowledge.

The VQ Intermediate Learner of the Year Award is for learners with qualifications up to level three, while the VQ Higher Learner of the Year Award is for qualifications from level four upwards.

The awards are organised by the Welsh Government in partnership with the National Training Federation for Wales (NTfW), ColegauCymru/ CollegesWales and Qualifications Wales. The campaign supports the marketing of the Apprenticeship Programme in Wales which is funded by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund.
