Shapes Hairdressing Shortlisted For Prestigious Award

Shapes Hairdressing, Leicester Shortlisted For ‘East Midlands Employer of the Year’

We are extremely proud to announce that Shapes Hairdressing has beaten off competition from hundreds of entrants to be short-listed for the East Midlands final of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2014. As finalists, we will be competing for the ‘East Midlands Employer of the Year’…and we couldn’t be any more excited!


The National Apprenticeship Awards, now in their eleventh year, celebrate the achievements of the country’s most outstanding apprentices and Apprenticeship employers. The award winners will be announced at a ceremony organised by the National Apprenticeship Service which will be held at the East Midlands Conference Centre on 2 September.

Sue Husband, Executive Director Apprenticeships and Delivery at the Skills Funding Agency said:

“Apprenticeships are thriving in England, and it’s not hard to see why. They offer ambitious young people and adults unrivalled career prospects, and give businesses an exceptional route to grow a highly qualified and motivated workforce.

“The National Apprenticeship Awards recognise the best of the best and are an excellent opportunity for individuals and employers to gain the credit they richly deserve for investing in their own futures. I am delighted that Shapes Hairdressing has been short-listed, and would like to congratulate them on this success. All of the finalists should be extremely proud of their achievements.”

All the East Midlands winners will proceed through to a final national judging stage and the highest scoring Apprenticeship employer entries nationally will have the additional honour of featuring in the acclaimed England’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list, which will be produced by the National Apprenticeship Service in partnership with City & Guilds.

The national award winners will be revealed during an awards ceremony at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham on the 13 November 2014.

The National Apprenticeship Awards are sponsored by BAE Systems, BT, City & Guilds, Learndirect, Nuclear Decommissioning Site Licence Companies and Unilever.
