Vicky, who is a hairdressing apprentice at Umberto Giannin, was announced as winner of the Level 2 Apprentice of the Year category.

She was nominated for the award by her college assessor – here’s what they had to say…

“Vicky had a challenging start to her hairdressing apprenticeship as, just a few months after starting her training, the country went in to the first lockdown and salons were forced to close. 

“Despite this, she remained positive, motivated and keen to move forward in her career – always training and looking to learn new skills and putting what she’s learned into practice. 

“Vicky is the epitome of an apprentice who works efficiently, is always polite and happy, embraces work with enthusiasm and talks positively about the apprenticeship programme and her experience in the workplace.”

Congratulations Vicky!
