Top Employers 2019
The Top 100 Employers and Top 80 Training Providers is based entirely on the opinions of apprentices and school leaver trainees from 100 UK organisations. Apprentices completed surveys analysing everything about their employers and training programmes, from skills development and career progression to training and company culture. We also used the surveys to rank individual categories – Intermediate, Advanced, Higher, and Degree Apprenticeships, and school leaver programmes – as well as industry-specific categories acknowledging the top employers in their particular fields.
A handful of categories were ranked by two judging panels, lending their expertise to specific issues. School Leaver of the Year, Best Recruitment Campaign, Best School Engagement, Most Innovative Recruitment Campaign and The Diversity & Inclusion Award were decided by an independent industry panel. A student panel, made up of a cross section of the AllAboutSchoolLeavers membership, judged the Best Website and Best Social Media categories. We hope both the Top 100 Employer rankings and Top 80 Training Provider rankings help school leavers make well-informed decisions about what first steps to take in their career.
