Semta Skills Awards Nominations Open

It’s that time of the year again when nominations open for the Semta Skills Awards! This is the chance for members to have their commitment to skills recognised and to celebrate the efforts of their apprentices and graduates at a glittering event, hosted by the BBC’s Steph McGovern.

Semta represents all of the 145,800 engineering and advanced manufacturing organisations across the UK and we want to encourage entries from companies across all sectors and sizes. We know the vital role that your members play in terms of economic contribution, job creation and skills development. That’s why we want to see your members getting the recognition they deserve.

What are the categories?

There are eight categories – from Apprentice of the Year to SME Investment in Skills – your members just need to select the best ones for their business. For details of all the categories and how to nominate, visit

Who can nominate?

Companies can nominate themselves or an individual in their organisation. Individuals can nominate themselves, but it helps if they have the backing of their employer and can include relevant quotes to support their entry.  

Nominations are open from 1 September to 30 November 2015.

When are the Awards?

The finalists and winners will be announced at a glittering Gala Awards Dinner on Wednesday 10 February 2016 at the Park Lane Hilton, London. 

The awards will be hosted by BBC journalist and presenter, Steph McGovern.  With her engineering background, Steph is the ideal host for our prestigious industry awards.

The Semta Skills Awards is an amazing event, supported by major industry players.  It’s an excellent opportunity for you to network and raise your profile within the sector.
