People talking at the Celebrating UWE Bristol Talent awards

Information for employers

Celebrating UWE Bristol Talent is our prestigious annual event which recognises the outstanding achievements of our talented students in various work-based employability-related activities.

The next academic year's event will take place in March 2020. The venue and timings will be confirmed nearer the time.

These awards also provide an opportunity to recognise and reward key employer partners including award sponsors, employers who have nominated their students and those who have actively engaged with our students throughout the academic year.

Sponsorship opportunities

Many local and national businesses choose to sponsor Celebrating UWE Bristol Talent. If you are interested in supporting the awards then please view our sponsorship opportunities.


Nominations for this year are now open.

Employers are able to nominate their placement or internship student for the awards. These students are then invited to submit an award entry to be considered for each award.

At the end of the internship or placement, we will ask you to complete a feedback form.  On the form you can nominate your intern or placement student for a prize category (see below) at this year’s Celebrating UWE Bristol Talent.
