This year’s Apprenticeship Awards Evening at Kingston Maurward College was a resounding success with broad range of Apprentices and employers attending the celebration.
Guests were treated to a buffet dinner with addresses by Principal Luke Rake and Chair of Dorset Chamber of Commerce, Paul Tansey; followed by a birds of prey talk by Kingston Maurward’s Laura Hewett.
Apprentices received awards in a diverse range of subjects including Agriculture, Environmental Conservation, Horticulture, Animal Care, Business and Education.
Due to the huge progress achieved during his apprenticeship, the overall Apprentice of the Year award was presented to Sam Adams who is employed by Bournemouth Borough Council.
Principal Luke Rake said of the Awards Evening: “Kingston Maurward is seeing its apprenticeship numbers rise as more and more people see the value of this route to higher levels of learning, and it was again a real privilege to celebrate with our outstanding apprentices all the success they have achieved, across a huge range of areas.
“I spoke with so many parents, employers and sponsors who shared in the evening and were thrilled to be part of the story of young people gaining skills for work in a way that engages them and adds real value to the companies they work for.”
