The TSW Training Apprenticeships Learner of the Month Award acknowledges the commitment, dedication and achievements of apprentices studying with TSW.
In August, TSW's Lead IQA, Kayleigh Paddick, nominated her health and social care apprentice, Blake Clemett, to be the TSW Training Apprenticeships' Learner of the Month.
He won, and little wonder why. He has achieved so much during his apprenticeship, giving his qualification, and workplace, all of his energy and passion.
