Three employees from Sanctuary Group are toasting success after triumphing at the 2018 Worcestershire Group Training Association (WGTA) Apprenticeship Awards.

Matthew Spellar, George Baldwin and Harry Eales, who work at Sanctuary’s offices on Castle Street in Worcester, all picked up accolades at the prestigious ceremony, which was held at Worcester Warriors’ Sixways Stadium.

Business and Administration Apprentice Matthew was presented with the Endeavour Award for his efforts in the face of adversity. The award recognised Matthew’s exceptional commitment to personal and professional development, including overcoming barriers to learning.

George, Accountancy Apprentice, won the Excellence in Accountancy honour for his outstanding approach to both Sanctuary and his studies as part of his Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification.

Harry, Business and Administration Apprentice, was jointly named Level 2 Apprentice of the Year, an award given for exceptional performance in the workplace.

The trio’s achievements are testament to Sanctuary’s national apprenticeship programme which has supported 1,500 young people into work over the past decade.

Through the programme, apprentices have the opportunity to study for qualifications alongside working in a variety of business areas such as housing, IT, maintenance, finance, horticulture, business and administration, and health and social care.

The WGTA Apprenticeship Awards are held annually to celebrate the apprenticeship programmes which help prepare young people for key jobs in local businesses.

Nicole Seymour, Director – Corporate Services, said: “Matthew, George and Harry have shown immense hard work and dedication to their apprenticeships and these awards recognise that.

“Their success, coupled with that in previous years of fellow apprentices, shows the value of our apprenticeship programme and underlines Sanctuary’s commitment to realising the potential of local young business people.”
