SBCSG 2023 Awards

Apprentice Awards 2023: Meet our sponsors!

With our 2023 Awards just around the corner, we would like to say a massive thank you to this year’s sponsors for making the awards possible and helping us give back while rewarding and celebrating the vast successes of apprentices within the region.

The aim of the awards is to highlight the achievements of apprentices and future talent within the construction industry in South Wales. It is also part of an overall objective to promote the construction industry’s image and showcase the benefits of considering the construction industry as a career path, and what skills individuals can gain from this career pathway.
