Apprenticeships Awards 2010
N orthbrook’s Apprentices held their third Annual Apprenticeship Celebration Evening in the Arundel Room at Northbrook College.
Rod Kenyon from the National Apprenticeship Ambassador Network was the guest speaker and spoke of the importance of apprentices to the economy and had some witty anecdotes about Apprentices through the ages.
The evening was held to celebrate the achievement of 184 apprentices who achieved their Apprenticeship Frameworks during 2008/9. Trophies were presented to 16 apprentices including an Overall Apprentice of the Year for 2008/9 Award, which went to student, Toby Cadman.
All Awards were sponsored by local businesses and each Apprentice received a £50 cheque. In addition, a local Electrical supplier BARMAN, generously donated £100 worth of vouchers for electrical equipment to be given to two Electrical Apprentices
For the first time, the Apprenticeship Team also presented an ‘Employer of the Year’ Award. For 2008/9 this was presented to Finn Developments.
Brenda Cook, Apprenticeships Manager, said “I would like to thank all College staff both academic and support, additional learning support and Exams for their help in ensuring the success of the Apprentices. The evening was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone.”
