This January we attended the South West Business and Community Awards at the Hilton hotel in Swindon. Our very own Alice Loveday was shortlisted from over 300 applications as Apprentice of the Year 2018. Being shortlisted is an amazing achievement for anyone and to be recognised for all her hard work and success as an apprentice with the South West Apprenticeship Company we are beyond proud of her achievements. We went along and walked the red carpet into a fantastic awards ceremony.


There was some great competition in Alice’s category and she was just pipped to the post for the Apprentice of the Year award by another well deserving apprentice. Not to be downhearted we enjoyed a fantastic evening seeing all the fantastic winners and listening to ‘Tiny Tina Turner’ perform an amazing live set throughout the ceremony. There was also a great charity theme to the event and £1000’s was raised on the night for three local charities.

On returning to the office we decided to surprise Alice with her own inflatable Trophy! She is a winner in our eyes!!
