Organised by the Yorkshire Evening Post in conjunction with the Halifax Courier and Wakefield Express, the ceremony will be hosted by former BBC Look North presenter Harry Gration.

Joining us as a support partner in these awards is the West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges.

YEP events manager Lisa Bradbury said: “We feel that taking these brand new Apprenticeship Awards to the city of Bradford means we recognise the strong foundations that have been created in apprenticeship schemes and is also home to the well-established Bradford Manufacturing weeks usually held in early October.”
