The Oxford Belfry Hotel was the venue and we were greeted by our hosts for the night Simon Smith of Wellers Accountants and Julia from Heart radio. After a networking buffet with welcome healthy options, we proceeded into the awards ceremony. After an introduction to the awards by Stuart Moore from Plus One Personnel they were announced.
The entrants to our category were all fantastic examples of what an apprenticeship can be, rewarding both the apprentice with hands-on training and the employer with new in-house skills. It was a difficult decision but the winner was Karcher's first ever apprentice and won outstanding praise from all the departments he worked in. So much so in fact, that Karcher created a job specifically for him and have continued to roll out their apprenticeship programme.
Congratulations to winner of Apprentice of the Year:
Here we are, with Julia of Heart Thames Valley, presenting Luke with his certificate.
A very well done to the other finalists:
The event was a great opportunity to meet local companies, network and find out about some of the great stories that the companies employees had to share. For more information on local apprenticeships, contact Oxfordshire Apprenticeships.

Excitement was mounting as The Red Carpet opened at the biggest beauty event of the year, The Beauty Awards 2019 with ASOS.
James and Michelle Sutton from Eye Care Cosmetics were lucky to have not one but TWO cosmetics competing in the final and even luckier to win the New Eye Innovation Award 2019 for their Waterproof Eyeliner.
Now is the time to check if your prescription goggles have survived the winter at the bottom of your swim bag, or if you can still see clearly through the lenses. With summer on its way, you may want to think about changing from clear to tinted or even mirrored lenses.
Well it's a hello to summer sunshine at last. Now's the time to say goodbye to winter holidays on the slopes and pack away your skis and skiing mask. However, if you are anything like us you are already planning your summer holiday.
