Congratulations to our two apprentices, Adam Fisk and Kyle Hallett, for receiving Highly Commended accolades at the inaugural Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards.
These new awards, which were held on 8 March during National Apprenticeship Week, are designed to celebrate the achievements of apprentices across the county and recognise the positive contribution they make to the local economy across a wide number of organisations and sectors.
Adam Fisk (interviewed in the February issue of the University’s staff magazine Blueprint) was Highly Commended in the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year category for his work as Maintenance Apprentice with the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
Kyle Hallett, a Mechanical Engineering Technician in Oncology, also scooped a Highly Commended accolade in the Advanced Apprentice category.
Clive Shepherd, the University’s Apprenticeship Manager said ‘Receiving these two Highly Commended awards is a great reflection on the high standard of work being carried out by all our apprentices on a day-to-day basis across the University, and we are proud that five of our apprentices were finalists at the event.
‘The University now has over 100 apprentices receiving high quality vocational training from dedicated mentors in a wide range of careers – and I know that everyone involved is keen to build upon this year’s success.’
The other three Oxford University finalists in this year’s Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards are:
- Grace Parsons, HR Apprentice with IT Services
- Sophie Jamieson, Laboratory Technician with Nuffield Department of Medicine
- Emily Joyce, PA to the Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach & Administrative Assistant.
