IET apprentice award finalists announced

Finalists for the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) apprentices and technicians awards have been announced. 

Winners are to be revealed at a London awards ceremony in November. 

The awards are: IET Apprentice of the Year, IET Technician of the Year, and IET Armed Forces Technician of the Year. They seek to recognise outstanding understanding and ability as well as their ambassadorial roles in schools. 

Winners will receive £1,000, two years free membership with the IET and payment of their professional registration fees. 

Professor Andy Hopper, IET president said: “The finalists should be very proud to be shortlisted in the Institution of Engineering and Technology Apprentice and Technician Awards. They were selected from a stellar line up of apprentices as some of the most exceptional young individuals working in their field. 

“The Apprentice and Technician Awards are part of the IET’s Inspiring Engineering Excellence Awards Series, which last year provided over £500,000 to celebrate excellence and research in the sector and encourage the next generation of engineers and technicians. All of our awards seek to inspire engineering excellence, right from apprentices and technicians at the start of their careers through to highly established professionals.”
