The Apprenticeship Award ceremony
The First Intuition Apprenticeship Awards were hosted remotely on Tuesday 21st December.
The Apprenticeship Award winners, alongside their managers, were invited to the ceremony where the achievements of the winners were publicly acknowledged.
Employers were enthusiastic in nominating their apprentices and the awards committee was challenged to whittle this down to just 12 deserving winners.
One of the winners said, “I was already so appreciative that my team had taken the time to put me forward, to then also be recognized by First Intuition was such a great surprise to end the year on. I’m grateful for all the support I’ve received and am looking forward to improving even further in the future”.
Another winner said, “Although it has been a difficult year, I am so happy with the progress I have made with my exams. The support from First Intuition has been amazing and I am so grateful to have been chosen as a winner of this award”.
The winning criteria
The criteria for the apprenticeship award winners included: going above and beyond, academic excellence, outstanding teamwork and contributing to the well being of their teams.
One student introduced Workout Wednesday’s for their firm to run remotely for all members of the team.
Another student organised raffles for charities, raising money for breast cancer.
Others were recognised for the outstanding quality of work and dedication throughout the year as well as going above and beyond.
Jo Dyson, Education Director at First Intuition said:
“It has been a delight to review the applications for the Annual FI Apprenticeship Awards. Our apprentices have continued to go from strength to strength in 2021. At a time when working remotely can be a barrier to developing the key business skills needed to take their career to the next level, our programme challenges and supports them in their development. The fact that so many of our employers nominated their apprentices for an award this year shows how much these skills are valued”.
