Three Trafford College Group apprentices have added to their silverware with trophies from Altrincham and Sale Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
Commis Chef Kane Brown from Royal Northern College of Music won best overall apprentice at Cresta Court Hotel on Thursday evening (Oct 10th), with hospital pharmacy assistant Nadeem Alli and Hairdresser Aimee Southgate of Tramps Boutique the runners-up.
It is the third time Kane’s learning has been recognised, with the 18-year-old already winning Overall Apprentice of the Year as well as Hospitality Apprentice of the Year at Trafford College Group’s own Apprenticeship Awards at AJ Bell Stadium earlier this year (March 7th).
Trafford College Group Assessor Emma Nixon said: “Kane is a true success story. This young apprentice has developed beyond all expectation. I’ve seen him develop from a shy school leaver into a skilled professional. It goes without saying that his colleagues also think he is just a true star.”
This week also saw the Stockport Heaton Moor teenager celebrate apprenticeship results of two distinctions and two passes.
Meanwhile, Nadeem also had to make a room in his trophy cabinet for the Chamber award, after clinching NHS Outstanding Contribution to Pharmacy Services in the Workplace last month.
Apprentice business development manager Michelle Whitehead said: “Nadeem was appointed a new line manager for the remaining journey of his apprenticeship. Again Nadeem took to this situation well and continued to strive!”
Aimee Southgate was also highly commended at Stockport Business Awards the same night as the Chamber Awards, having made the shortlist as a hot tip as only of the area’s future leaders in the ‘Rising Star’ category.
Apprentice business development manager Lola Docherty said: “Aimee shows exceptional promise working in a very progressive salon. For her dedication and hard work she put in during her apprenticeship, she deserves all the success.”
