More than 40 of South Cheshire’s most accomplished apprentices came together virtually for Cheshire College’s Apprenticeship Awards 2021.

They recognise learners who have exceeded expectations and made significant contributions to their workplaces.

Twelve awards were presented to apprentices and apprenticeship providers.

Guests tuned in live to watch the ceremony which included talks with key North West employers.

Dhesi, Principal and CEO of Cheshire College, said: “All of the Apprenticeship Award winners demonstrated outstanding levels of achievements and it was delightful to hear the motivating stories about how they have helped their businesses adapt and build during what has been a tremendously difficult year.

“They really are the cream-of-the-crop and should be immensely proud of their accomplishments.

“All of our Apprenticeship Award nominees demonstrate how apprenticeships can you take you anywhere and here at Cheshire College, we’re extremely proud of our apprenticeship programmes which deliver high-quality and relevant training for a diverse range of industries.”

Karen Roberts, Assistant Principal – Apprenticeships and Employer Engagement, added: “Cheshire College’s Annual Apprenticeship Awards are always a fantastic evening.

“And whilst this year’s celebrations looked slightly different, it was fantastic to celebrate our high calibre of learners who strive to achieve the very best through their hard work, dedication and commitment.”

Kayleigh Johnson, Business Administration Apprentice at Bentley Motors, was one of the evening’s winners taking home the award for ‘Business, Administration and Law Apprentice of the Year’.

She said: “I am so happy I pushed myself out my comfort zone and realised my own capabilities – not only has it paid off as I have completed my Apprenticeship, but it has also allowed me to win this award, which is a huge achievement.

“I loved completing my Apprenticeship in Business Administration and would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering an Apprenticeship in this sector.”
