The Rising Star Awards recognise the best young talent in our industry and helps them to reach their career goals. 

Is there someone in your team that has great potential? Encourage them to apply and receive funding of up to £1500 towards training to develop their skills and career ambitions.

Supporting their application

Rising star funding is not designed to replace the essential employer training necessary for someone to fulfil their role, and we encourage all applicants to talk to their manager or HR to make sure what they are applying for isn’t already covered by their employer. 

Award winners tend to have well thought out training choices and an understanding of how it will benefit them and the company.
