UK - The Pfizer Trainee of the Year Award 2010 is open to all United Kingdom pig unit personnel who can show how training benefits both their career and the performance of livestock on their unit.

Founded by Agskills, the award has gone from strength to strength since it became a national award in 2007. It has been extremely motivating, not only for entrants and their employers, but also for the industry as a whole.

It is the practical skills acquired through training that are judged, not literary skills and newcomers have as good a chance of success as more experienced employees.

The winner’s employer receives a £2,000 training grant.

The winner receives a £500 cash prize, an engraved trophy and an overnight trip to London to attend the presentation event at the House of Commons.

The first stage of selection is based on a simple application form, which is very quick to complete. The second stage is an informal interview with three judges. They all want entrants to do well and are there to encourage them!

The closing date for entries is Friday, 30 July 2010.
