Nominations open for VQ Employer and Learner Awards 2014

The seventh annual VQ Day campaign has kicked off with a call for vocational excellence to be recognised within the world of business – with companies being encouraged to nominate themselves for the VQ Employer of the Year award, sponsored by City & Guilds.

The VQ Employer of the Year award was successfully introduced last year to recognise employers who promote the value of vocational qualifications in the workplace. There will be two categories for this award, SME (1 – 249 employees) and Large Employers (250+ employees).

Employers and learning providers are also encouraged to nominate outstanding students and employees for the national VQ Learner of the Year award, sponsored by OCR.

Nominations for all the awards will be judged by a panel and the chosen winners will be presented with their awards at the VQ Day Awards ceremony on the June 3, 2014 in Westminster, London.  

The deadline for submissions for both the VQ Learner and Employer of the Year Awards is May 2, 2014. To find out more information and how to enter, visit: www.vqday.org.uk/vq-awards
