Tickets for our spectacular Awards Evening are now available.

The AAC Apprenticeship Awards Gala Dinner & Awards is always a highlight of the Annual Apprenticeship Conference. The awards evening traditionally takes place at the end of the conference however, due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year’s awards evening will take place as a standalone event.

Following the latest Government guidance, we’re delighted to finally be able to confirm a date for when the event will take place.

On Thursday 8th July we will hold our Gala Dinner and Awards Evening at the ICC, Birmingham.

Alongside the announcement of the winners of this year’s AAC Apprenticeship Awards, we will also be holding a variety of fundraising activities on the night. We will announce our chosen charity in April.

Coronavirus refund policy

In the event we are unable to host this event due to a change in government regulations ticket buyers will be offered a 100% refund or a credit note towards the 2022 Gala Dinner Evening.
