Sarah Barley, The Education Alliance Trust Director of Careers and Employability, has won Apprenticeship Champion of the Year at the National Apprenticeship Awards.
Mrs Barley was named as the winner of the Santander sponsored award at an exclusive ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House on Thursday 18 January 2018. The award is in recognition of the Employer Led Programme, which Mrs Barley originally developed at South Hunsley School in 2015.
This unique programme incorporates local employers who support and inspire young people about their next steps. Students on the programme are equipped with key employability skills and given access to professional industry placements, employability workshops and one-on-one meetings with industry mentors.
Mrs Barley said: "I am delighted to have won this prestigious award. I've worked really hard to incorporate careers education into the curriculum and it's wonderful to have this recognised at a national level."
