Hard-working apprentice awarded

A HARD-WORKING apprentice has been honoured for her work

Business Support Apprentice Lauren Preece was named Apprentice of the Year at the Stratford College Excellence Awards.

The student’s recognition comes after only eight months in post at Stratford District Council’s Venture House Business Centre, – a business launch pad which opened last year.

Chairman of the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership Jonathan Browning said: “Not only is this a great accolade for Lauren, it demonstrates the council’s commitment in support of the apprenticeship and skills agenda and its desire to help inspire a new generation of talent not only for its staff but for the clients who frequent the great business facility that Venture House provides.”
