Judges are looking for strong advocates of aviation skills who showcase how they proactively go beyond their normal duties to promote aviation as an excellent career route. Make sure you give the judges hard evidence to base their decisions on. Include examples about your achievements, contributions and impacts in your training. Provide strong evidence as to why you consider yourself to be an exemplar and an advocate of apprenticeships. The reference supplied to support your application will play a significant part in the success of your application.
Nominees are expected to attach a portfolio to support and expand upon the information provided in your answers. This is your opportunity to demonstrate to the judges the impact your apprenticeship has had on you, and in turn how you have positively impacted on others. Try to ensure that any illustrations add real value to your portfolio, and make sure that you do not exceed the word count (750 words). Applications should be completed and submitted by the nominees themselves.
