CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER
Another fantastic 2 days for this year’s PPMA Public Sector Apprentice of the Year!
So much talent radiated from the two days of coaching and competition at Warwick Business School on 20th – 21st January 2020, and our judging panel were very impressed and it was a difficult task for them to decide our final winner but in the end they awarded Aaron Hawthorne representing Northern Ireland Audit Office and Sophie Floyd representing Tendring District Council was awarded The Spirit of the Programme . That in no way diminishes the brilliance of the other exceptional Apprentices who all show cased their skills and abilities brilliantly. We were blown away by their individual talent and truly inspirational personal stories.
It has been fantastic to work with, and getting to know, a group of people at the start of their careers, all bursting with enthusiasm to learn, demonstrating an ability to grow, and passion for working in the public sector – what a privilege – and thanks to you all! Everyone was a great ambassador for their organisations and have bright futures ahead of them.
