What does the Award Ceremony entail?


The event is a celebration of all our Engineering Apprentice’s achievements; there are a variety of different awards available on the night presented to a selection of outstanding nominees for their exceptional work in their Apprenticeship studies.

The ceremony allows us, as the training provider, along with employers, friends and family to celebrate with the 1st and 2nd year Apprentices in their achievements.

IPS Director, Don Macdonald will be presenting and the event will feature speeches from the following:

– Employers explaining the benefits of Apprenticeships to their businesses

There will be a selection of awards for specific categories, Personal Development, IPS Workshop Awards and the BTEC Certification/Awards for 1st and 2nd year Apprentices.
