Northern Skills Group celebrated the exceptional performance of people on its apprenticeship programmes over the past year at its first annual Apprentice Awards Evening.
Among the winners was Ella Dixon from Blyth, who has demonstrated high levels of self-motivation and ICT skills while studying for a business administration apprenticeship with Sage in Newcastle.
Her commitment to learning has led to her being offered a position within the business after she completed her training.
Ella said: “I have really enjoyed my Northern Skills Group apprenticeship with Sage and winning this award has made me realise that hard work really does pay off.”
Accolades were also handed out by the provider of apprenticeships and employer-led training at the ceremony for engineering, professional skills and service industries categories.
