Award Description & Focus

This Award recognises excellence in ensuring that the graduate scheme helps your organisation to achieve its strategic goals and is supported by excellent stakeholder engagement. An Award-winning entry will show a strong vision, which is directly focused on helping the organisation to overcome challenges and achieve strategic organisational goals.  It will also demonstrate active engagement with, and involvement of, a range of stakeholders. There should be two-way influencing and communication that is reviewed and monitored on a regular basis.

Entry process

This year we are not requesting full-length application forms.

Instead we simply want you tell us, in 300 words, how your development programme demonstrates excellence and innovation in your chosen category.

The entries that demonstrate the most impact, as judged by a panel drawn from the AGR membership, will then be shortlisted for further consideration by our second panel of judges.

Please note that if your statement is shortlisted, you will be asked to provide more detailed information about your programme for the consideration of our professional judging panel, which has been drawn from our previous award winners.

Closing date: Wednesday 3rd December
