This year’s Microsoft Apprentice of the year awards are set to be bigger than ever. With more categories and more nominations than ever before, it is a real opportunity to honour those apprentices who really stand out and we want YOU, Baltic’s own fantastic Apprentices, to be one of them! We encourage you to talk to your employers about this fantastic opportunity, who wouldn’t want their apprentice to be recognised as Microsoft Apprentice of the Year? We have even included a link below to the nomination form so it couldn’t be easier!
These awards have always highlighted some of the exceptional talent that have been through a Microsoft programme. Traditionally, that talent has been acknowledged in three categories; from small businesses to enterprise. But now, with the ever growing stock of top quality apprentices studying more varied programmes, Microsoft have broadened the categories to 5, covering the whole spectrum of IT apprentices. Giving many more of our talented apprentices the chance to be honoured for their hard work and determination.
The 5 voting categories are:
§ Support (i.e. Helpdesk, Cloud/Server Admin, 1st/ 2nd Line Support, Network Support)
§ Development (i.e. Software/ Web/ Applications Developer/ Programmer)
§ Sales – (i.e. IT/Technical Telesales, Sales Support, Account Manager)
§ Digital Marketing (i.e. Social Media Exec, Digital Marketing Assistant, Campaign Executive)
§ Business Management (i.e. Business/ Ops Admin, Office Administrator/Manager)
Nominations for Apprentice of the Year 2016 are open now and close on June 3rd 2016. All short-listed candidates, training providers and employers are invited to an awards reception at Microsoft UK headquarters. This will be a fantastic opportunity to celebrate success over the past year, as well as the opportunity to network with other candidates, employers and media organisations from all across the UK.
