We want to acknowledge an apprentice who hasn’t given up despite difficulties and reward them for their determination and achievements. Individuals can apply directly or be nominated by a third party.” 
John McLean, Chief Executive,  Radius Housing said, “As a leading social enterprise involved in housing care and support to over 33,000 homes across Northern Ireland we are delighted to be partnering with CITB NI in this new award and providing the £500 award.  Many construction apprentices have worked on our social housing developments and we understand the needs, demands and challenges faced within the sector.”
