Special Award


About the award

Individuals shortlisted for Apprentice of the Year Special Award have been selected for personal achievement, community work or their contribution to the workplace in the context of the covid-19 pandemic.

Congratulations Sarah, Apprentice of the Year - Special Award

“It’s amazing how Sarah’s been able to complete her level 4 qualification largely using just a mobile phone. She juggled two young children, managed to home school the toddler and well as developing her Welsh language skills to help the children with homework. She has also supported her employer, the salon team and the local community, remaining positive throughout”
