The School Leaver Awards 2018

The School Leaver Awards by AllAboutSchoolLeavers celebrate the Top 100 employers on offer to young people at the beginning of their careers.  

It is the biggest and best awards ceremony of its kind for school and college leaver employers, and the biggest night out in the early recruitment calendar. Based on the real-life experiences of apprentices and school leaver trainees, AllAboutSchoolLeavers rewards those employers who offer the best UK apprenticeships and school leaver programmes; as well as those who excel in areas such as job satisfaction, career progression, training and company culture.  

There are also awards for the best employers in their particular industries, acknowledging the work being done in every area, from accounting and professional services, engineering and retail, to the creative industries and the public sector.  

Getting involved is a great opportunity to be acknowledged for your hard work in the school leaver market, meet others in the industry, and keep up-to-date with the latest innovations.  

Best of all, they are FREE to enter!
