Capula employee, Sally Parker was triumphant at the first Staffordshire University Apprenticeships Celebration Evening, taking home the award for Digital Technology & Arts Outstanding Apprentice.
Over 100 graduate apprentices and their employers attended the glamorous ceremony, held on Monday 16th May at the newly built Catalyst Building.
The evening saw eight different awards presented for outstanding contributions and successes: including, apprenticeship achievement, employer recognition, and acknowledging those who have gone the extra mile to champion apprenticeships.
Amongst the nominations, we were also shortlisted in the Employer of the Year category, which recognises employers who have demonstrated a commitment to apprenticeships, and the success that apprentices have brought to their organisation.
Speaking on her victory, Sally said, “I’m so thrilled to have been recognised by Staffordshire University for this award. It’s such an honour to have your achievements acknowledged by your employer and university, at this significant level.”
This is not the first time that Sally has been acknowledged for her outstanding commitment to personal and professional development, after achieving Higher/Degree Apprentice of the Year at the prestigious National Skills Academy for Nuclear (NSAN) Awards in 2021.
Speaking on Sally’s success, Steve Tellwright, Capula’s HR Director said: “This is another fantastic achievement for Sally and it’s wonderful to see all the recognition she is gaining for her exceptional hard work.
Since joining Capula, Sally has continued to highlight her commitment to expanding her knowledge in the field of Digital Technology; and deserves every bit of recognition for winning this award.”
Sally is continuing to advance her professional development and is currently studying a Level 7 Digital Transformation short course at Staffordshire University.
