FWD Skills and Development Awards

A celebration of the wholesale sector’s investment in talent, with MPs on hand to welcome the winners to the seat of government.


These non-competitive awards celebrate the achievements of wholesale people who have made a significant commitment to their employer and the sector as a whole through apprenticeships, training and academic study.

Entries are not judged – we invite FWD members to select members of their team who have taken on training and career development courses in the past two years. The winners will be invited to the House of Commons to meet ministers and MPs – through this, we demonstrate that wholesalers are investing in talented people and deserve the support of Government in doing so.

Nominations can be for people of any age or experience, and from any discipline across the wholesale sector. You may be asked to provide evidence of structured training and/or the involvement of an external training provider.

Here’s the nomination form

The presentation takes place at 4pm on November 6 2018 in the Thames Pavilion at the Houses of Parliament, London. This event is free for FWD members and partners.
