Apprenticeships are essential to the economy and can be found in businesses both large and small.
Proving an immediate solution to staff shortages, bringing enthusiasm to the workplace, new skills and commitment to their employer’s business, they are proven to help businesses grow and be invaluable to succession planning.
Now three apprentices from Kirklees College have been awarded at the Kirklees Apprenticeship Hub Awards at the John Smiths Stadium, Huddersfield to mark their achievement of apprentices working or living in the area.
The apprentices have been nominated by their employer or learning provider because of their commitment, hard work and achievements whilst being an apprentice.
The awards also recognise businesses that have demonstrated a commitment to their apprenticeship programme and the young people they employ.
Suki Singh, from Huddersfield, who works at Kirklees College as an admin assistant and is studying a L2 Apprenticeship in Business and Administration, was named as 16-18 Intermediate Apprentice of the Year.
Maariyah Rawat, from Batley, is studying an L3 Process Manufacturing Apprenticeship at Kirklees College and won the 19+ Intermediate Apprentice of the Year. Her employer Syngenta won the Apprentice Employer of the Year award.
And Mary Wroe, from Quarmby, Huddersfield, was named 16-18 Advanced Apprentice of the Year. She works for Kirklees Active Leisure and is studying a L3 Engineering Apprenticeship at Kirklees College.
The event included speeches from Kirklees Council’s Assistant Director of learning Gill Ellis and Deputy Assistant Director Martin Green. The awards were presented by Commercial Director of Huddersfield Town Football Club Sean Jarvis.
