Well done Sophie! - Celebrating Apprentice Success.
An awards ceremony was held at the Armadillo this week to celebrate the achievements of several Apprentices locally that have completed their level 2 apprenticeships.  I am proud to say that our very own Sophie Webber was among the chosen few to receive an award. Sophie Webber, who joined the Armadillo May 2013 as a Business Admin Apprentice straight from 6th Form, completed her level 2 apprenticeship and has recently been progressed onto a level 3. 
The awards ceremony was a great opportunity to recognise and reward Sophie’s hard work and success. The ceremony also provided the opportunity for everyone involved in the success of Apprenticeships to come together with a real feeling of pride in what the apprentices have achieved in their learning and work.
Eleanor Machin, Armadillo Business Manager ‘Sophie has had a fantastic year at the Armadillo and has achieved so much, becoming a key member of the team. She took on the challenge of the role and has worked hard to personally develop her skills and organise some excellent events raising the profile of the Armadillo. She should be very proud of her achievements.  With her mature ‘can do’ attitude through work place experience and the support of the team she has become a confident and very capable Administrator.  Sophie has taken the next step in her career to commence her level 3 Apprenticeship and I look forward to watching Sophie develop and grow further.’
Armadillo Apprenticeships give young people living in Yate the opportunity to work for a local employer, earn a salary and gain a nationally recognised qualification whilst gaining valuable workplace skills and experience. We have successfully run the apprenticeship scheme for three years and we plan to continue offering apprentice positions, each year, to the young people of Yate. It is not only good for the business but also the wider economy and means long-term benefits for South Gloucestershire people by helping to develop a skilled workforce and further boosting the local economy. The Armadillo apprentice project has been, and continues to be, a very successful opportunity for young people with hidden potential giving them the very best skills, helping them to achieve a nationally recognised qualification, training and opportunities to give them the very best chance to succeed in their chosen career field.
