ECA Edmundson Apprentice of the Year Award 2023

Does your business employ an apprentice who deserves to be recognised? 

For over 45 years, the ECA Edmundson Electrical Award has showcased the very best talent across ECA’s Member businesses.

Established in 1975, the ECA Edmundson Award is widely recognised as being one of the premier training awards across the electrotechnical and engineering services industry. The award aims to recognise outstanding apprentices who not only have good technical skills but are role models for others in the industry.

Sponsored by Edmundson Electrical with the administration and promotion from ECA. 

Entries are now closed.

The award will be presented on Wednesday 13 September at Trinity House, Trinity Square, London EC3N 4DH

Why enter your apprentice?

The award presents a great opportunity to increase the profile of your business within the industry and when your apprentices are recognised as the best in the industry, your business becomes even more attractive as an employer. Plus, even if you don't win, recognition is given to the top three entrants and their employers! 

But don't just take our word for it, hear from last year's winner Veronica Jennings on why it's a MUST to enter!
