The team wanted to recognise Corin for his excellent attitude towards his Apprenticeship Standard, and they wish him the very best of luck when end point assessment approaches. Tiffany Pearce, Hospitality Manager, Team Leader Level 3, and Paulo Jardim, Senior Events Co-ordinator, Team Leader Level 3 Tiffany was nominated as someone known to produce a high quality of work, and also an ongoing pleasure to work with – her workplace coach called her “A Learning Partner’s dream”. Paulo was also recognised for his great efforts and learning. His team found that he was great at ’seeing the big picture’ and applied this approach to completing his apprenticeship too. Boboi Rahedi, Project Manager, Project Management Level 4 Boboi was recognised for being a curious learner who is able to put all that is given him into practice. With work that is exceptional, well presented, logical and always delivered to the very highest standards, his approach is mirrored in his personality, as he is always happy and extremely attentive to those that he is with. Jenny Harris, Contract Support Administrator, HR Support Level 3 Jenny was nominated as she has been a fantastic learner right from the start of her Apprenticeship.

Wendy Fetterroll, L&D (Learning & Development) Business Parter, Coaching Professional Level 5 Wendy was recognised for her hard work, determination, and excellent approach to her apprenticeship. Wendy successfully passed her end point assessment in October 2022. Her examiner provided excellent feedback “Wendy has a passionate approach to coaching, and this was visible during your interview”. Claire Dominick (pictured), Samantha McCormick, and Victoria Fielding-Liddle, Custody and Detention This group were all recognised for individually showing a flair for learning, and their ongoing enthusiasm and commitment in the unique structure of the Custody and Detention apprenticeship. Learners are expected to fulfil the role of Officer after their initial training, and with that comes great responsibility. The group have thrived in the programme, and been described as ‘the epitome of professional, decent Officers’. Throughout National Apprenticeship Week, we shared a range of stories from our apprentices, and also hosted a range of sessions, educating colleagues on the benefits of embarking on an apprenticeship, or hiring one into their team.
