A Welwyn woman has scooped a national award recognising her contribution to raising the profile of apprenticeships.

The National Apprenticeship Awards, now in their 14th year, showcase the successes and benefits of apprenticeships across England in the last year.

Both winners and highly-commended entries were announced at an awards ceremony held at Newmarket Racecourse.

Living up to her name, Julie Honour-Jones won Apprenticship Champion of the Year for her role at Sir John Lawes School in Harpenden.

She said: “Entering education from a background of recruitment and training in industry, I have a strong passion to educate students and parents about apprenticeships and explode the myths and stigma surrounding them.

“In addition to my role, I have achieved this by devising a co-ordinated careers plan, including a Higher Apprenticeship Evening and a Careers Day.”

Skills and apprenticeships minister Anne Milton said: “The National Apprenticeship Awards are a fantastic way to demonstrate the incredible benefits and contributions of both apprentices and their employers across the country.
