Apprentice Achievements are Recognised within the House of Commons

Two apprentices from Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training were honored at the House of Commons in London for their dedication and hard work as part of the 10th anniversary of The Apprenticeship Ladder initiative. This regional campaign aims to create partnerships between training providers and employers, facilitating access to high-quality apprenticeships for individuals seeking to gain valuable skills and pursue fulfilling careers.

Abigail Gumery, an accountancy apprentice stationed at The SmallPeice Trust in Leamington Spa, was recognised for her exceptional efforts, earning the title of 'Apprentice of the Year.' Additionally, she was nominated for the Endeavor Award for her noteworthy contributions to the local community beyond her professional duties. Niall Smith, an Early Years Care apprentice employed at Beatle Woods, received the Endeavor Award for his remarkable involvement in community service. Outside of his work in a nursery, Niall serves as a scout leader, providing support to young children.

These apprentices were acknowledged as part of the 10-year anniversary celebration of The Apprenticeship Ladder, a programme aimed at bridging the gap between employers and individuals to enhance community skills and provide apprentices with valuable on-the-job training opportunities. This milestone celebration marks a significant achievement for The Apprenticeship Ladder Foundation, which has been instrumental in empowering individuals and businesses alike for 10 years.
