Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards 2018
This year’s Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards were recently hosted and celebrated in style at Truro & Penwith College.
Young Apprentices, their families and colleagues came together for this annual event, when the opportunity was taken to celebrate not only the achievements of Apprentices from across Cornwall who work in a variety of sectors but also those employers who go the extra mile in terms of the provision and support they provide.
The Cornish Pirates sponsored the Cornwall Apprenticeship Awards 2018 ‘Accountancy’ award, which was won by Bethany Kent from Tregothnan. Jack Richards represented the Pirates on a night when in the same category Hanna Garraghan from the Headland Hotel and Katie Wilson from The Learning Academy Trust were highly commended.
Holly Day and Neil Caddy from Pirate FM presented the awards with support from Cornwall-wide business sponsors to overall recognise and reward the exceptional achievement of 38 shortlisted learners and employers involved in Apprenticeship training.
The Awards are open to all Apprentices and Apprenticeship employers across Cornwall and cover a range of professional categories including construction, engineering, management and marketing and business.
Judging the Awards was a panel made up of industry leaders from a range of large and medium Cornish employers. 2018 was a very successful year for learners from Truro & Penwith College as 11 of the College’s Apprentices came out on top in 13 Apprentice categories.
