Our Employer of the Month Award is an opportunity for the spotlight to shine on one of our current employers who has worked hard to support their apprentice(s), provides progression and career development opportunities, and goes that extra mile to accommodate, drive and promote apprenticeships within the company. This is an opportunity to celebrate apprenticeships and their undeniable value to employers.
In order to be awarded Employer of the Month, employers can be nominated by a TDM coach, other TDM members of staff, the mentor within the company, or the apprentice themselves.
