CRC Apprenticeship Awards 2018 - Winning Apprentices and Employers from across Cambridgeshire

The Overall Apprentice and Employers of the Year were also revealed on the night. This year the judges decided to award the Overall Apprentice of the Year 2018 to two apprentices; Joshua Morrow, a Level 3 Business Administration apprentice with Domino UK for his outstanding commitment to his apprenticeship and invaluable skill set, and Joshua Willis a Level 3 Electrotechnical apprentice at PA Collacott for his exceptional work and the highly sought after specialist skills he has gained.

The Overall Employer of the Year award went to The Fields Children’s Centre, an employer who consistently goes above and beyond for their apprentices providing additional training and running best-practice workshops.

CRC Vice Principal, Michelle Dowse, said all the winning apprentices had shown outstanding skills, commitment and growth throughout their apprenticeships and were an asset to their employers.

“Congratulations to our outstanding and very worthy winners,” she said. “Our Apprenticeship Awards are one of the highlights of the year at CRC; it’s a very special moment to be able to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our apprentices and the commitment of employers across the region.

“Our Apprentices of the Year are all outstanding individuals who have had a huge impact at work and developed skills and attributes that help them excel in their careers.”
