The Education and Skills Funding Agency fresh

The National Apprenticeship Awards 2020

Since 2013 fresh have partnered with the Education and Skills Funding Agency to deliver The National Apprenticeship Awards.

The National Apprenticeship Awards showcases the diverse and growing range of sectors engaged with apprenticeships. It is a time to truly recognise the outstanding achievements of employers and apprentices across the country and fresh understand the importance of creating a celebratory evening to make all guests feel rewarded and have an evening they won’t forget.

After delivering the event in London for the last 5 years for over 850 guests we worked with them to develop an online event for their 17th annual awards in 2020. This was a unique online event and their first to date, broadcast from a studio, hosted by BBC Presenter Dan Walker.

Despite the challenges 2020 brought, they received over 1100 entries to the 2020 National Apprenticeship Awards and had 10 sponsored awards.

fresh were responsible for the creative theme, production, live broadcast, studio management, host management, delegate management and logistics for this online event working in partnership as always, with Education Skill Funding Agency to manage the venue and sponsors. We also produced 120 films for the event!

The event was a great success with fantastic feedback from the event sponsors which was a great testament to their first online event. A total of 1060 people registered and watched the ceremony via their website. 92% of viewers rated the accessibility of the broadcast good or excellent and 60% of viewers forwarded the broadcast to family, friends or colleagues to watch.
