Care catering apprentice wins Regional Apprentice of the Year award

Young care catering assistant wins Regional Apprentice of the Year Award

A care catering assistant from Anchor’s Harden Hall, Walsall, has won the Apprentice of the Year, West Midlands Region, of the National Apprenticeship Awards for 2020.

John Brookes, 18, who started working for the care home in October 2018 said: “I’m proud to have won the regional final, it was an honour just to be nominated! I joined up as an apprentice in a care home because I wanted to give something back to the older generation who have done so much for this country. I wanted to take good care of them so their families knew they were in good hands.

“I really enjoy my job and working as an apprentice has taught me so much. I’m just glad that Anchor and Harden Hall have encouraged me to do what I love. This wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for such a great team that have pushed me to be my very best from the very start.”

The National Apprenticeship Awards showcase the success stories of those who have really embraced their apprenticeships.

Paula Borland, Anchor’s Leadership and Talent Manager, praised John for all his work in care catering: “John has shown commitment and dedication not only to his learning journey as an apprentice, but to his colleagues and more importantly our residents. He really does think of how he can use his skills and talents to benefit them.

John is now being entered into the National Finals to win the National Apprentice of the Year.
