Lifetime Learner Achievement Awards Winners 2015

As the year draws to a close, Lifetime Training is once again celebrating training success and achievement at an awards ceremony hosted at the Tower of London. Apprentices representing a range of sectors received awards as part of the Lifetime Learner Achievement Awards.

Now in their fourth year, these annual Awards recognise, reward and celebrate the personal successes and resulting career development of individuals who have completed an Apprenticeship qualification with Lifetime Training.

From more than 300 nominations, 24 finalists were shortlisted to attend the Awards event. Each finalist met with a panel of judges representing their sector who then selected their eventual winners.

The day started at the Crystal, London’s most sustainable building, included a cruise on the river Thames before the awards ceremony at the Tower of London.

This year’s guest speaker was Tony Adams from the Skills Funding Association, who reiterated the importance of apprenticeships for the UK economy. He also praised the quality of training provided by Lifetime Training.

On winning her award, Active Leisure Apprentice of the Year, Ellie Woollam said: “There really are no words, I’m so excited to have won. I’ve come so far already and I can’t wait to see what the next few years hold. To be recognised in these Awards is a very proud moment.”

Retail and Commerce winner, Paul Hulbert said: “Overwhelmed is an understatement. I’ve worked so hard to change my life, to create something of myself and this is just the best reward. I now know that I can achieve my dreams if I put my mind to it.”

Alex Khan, CEO of Lifetime Training commented on the day:
“The life and career journeys of all our finalists all vary dramatically but there’s one common thread throughout – personal determination and professional training does make such a difference. From improving a person’s self-esteem to providing the leadership and management tools that help them climb the career ladder, these qualifications clearly mean more than just a certificate. Once again the finalists were all inspirational, and the winners truly exceptional. I wish them all every success in their future careers.”
