The award for the entrepreneur is a prestigious one, which recognises an individual who has excelled in business leadership, has a wealth of experience in launching/managing sustainable businesses, creates employment opportunities for the region and contributes to the communities in which they operate.

The winner of this award will be a business visionary who has made a significant contribution to business in the Falkirk area.

Apprenticeship schemes have fast become a preferred route to employment for thousands of school leavers and we’re looking for our Apprentice of the Year.
