Meet Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards Apprenticeship Ambassador of the Year Jordan

The Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards recognised the best talent in the county with a special presentation evening on Thursday 4th April 2019 in the stunning setting of Jurys Inn Oxford.

In addition to celebrating the successes of Oxfordshire’s Apprentices, employers and schools, the Awards also gave us the opportunity to recognise our Apprenticeship Ambassadors through both an Ambassador of the Year Award and the presentation of certificates to some of our Ambassadors for outstanding commitment to the scheme.

The Apprenticeship Ambassador Award was sponsored by OxLEP in recognition of the support that the Ambassadors give the OxLEP Skills team at a wide variety of careers activities and initiatives, from human libraries to Apprenticeship workshops.

The OxLEP skills team had the difficult task of choosing one Ambassador from so many fantastic ones to receive the award. However, our winner stood out as a particularly committed and passionate Ambassador – Jordan Morris, Print Apprentice at the University of Oxford Print Studio.

Jordan is perhaps the most enthusiastic person about their job we have ever met! She has inspired hundreds of young people by sharing her experience of being an Apprentice, willingly volunteering to take part in all kinds of activities with the OxLEP Skills team, including giving mock interviews, talking to both small and whole year groups of students and even leading a workshop with a class of Year 7 students!

Jordan has also played a very important role in the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards from the very start, designing the wonderful trophies and certificates that are presented to the winners. Jordan and her team at the University Print Studio kindly produce them for us each year. We were delighted to present her with one this year, having worked with her team to produce it without her knowing!

Congratulations to Jordan and also to the other Apprenticeship Ambassadors recognised for their commitment to the scheme:
