Congratulations to Wesley Sinfield, our Internal Audit and Corporate Anti-Fraud Team Apprentice, who was recognised as Highly Commended at the London Councils 2019 London Borough Apprenticeships Awards yesterday. You have done us proud!
Wesley Sinfield collects his Highly Commended certificate.
The event, which is sponsored by Oracle, recognises the outstanding contribution and impact apprentices make across London local government.
The awards celebrate the work of the London boroughs, which offer impressive apprenticeship opportunities that enrich and empower their communities. This year brings a particularly diverse cohort of winners; read full details here. Boroughs are committed to creating employment and training opportunities through apprenticeships, and the number of apprentices boroughs have recruited directly increased by 36% in 2018-19 compared to the previous year, further evidencing the value of apprenticeships. This follows an 81% increase between 2016-17 and 2017-18, since the introduction of the apprenticeship levy.

Wesley said: "It’s a great achievement to receive recognition through this award for the progress this apprenticeship has allowed me to make. A big thank you to Barnet Council and more so my team for giving me the opportunity and support needed to grow as an apprentice but also as a person."
