We at Skills for Growth believe in young talent which is why it is my absolute pleasure to report that one of our apprentices, Sidone Smith, has just won London Council’s Apprentice of the Year 2015. Competition is high for this accolade and, when considering the fact that Sidone works in the emotionally demanding Crisis Intervention team, her achievement is all the more impressive.

 Sidone has been offered a role as a Trainee Domestic Violence Officer once she finishes her Apprenticeship which will see her sponsored to complete the Independent Domestic Violence Advisor course. The council has admitted to finding it difficult to fill these roles due to the dedication and passion required to successfully undertake them. However, Sidone, regularly demonstrates these qualities in abundance.

For us at Skills for Growth, this is an example of how we work with employers in progressing young people's careers. It is what apprenticeship programmes are all about; giving a young person an opportunity to shine whilst the business gets to train and mould a professional according to their needs and ideals.

Any apprentice or potential apprentice who reads this should take heed from Sidone’s story and see that with hard work this could be your story too. And if you are an employer, why not give us a call on 0208 221 0500 and speak to our dedicated Learner Services team? Your Sidone could be just around the corner.
