Kensington and Chelsea College Apprenticeship Student Earns a Double Dose of Success


A Kensington and Chelsea College student has been flying the flag for apprenticeships following a double dose of awards success.

Lucy Ingle, who studied NVQ level 2 in Business and Administration through the college, was shortlisted as one of the final three in the London region for the Apprentice of the Year award.

The ambitious HR Apprentice who works for Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust, beat 1600 entries from across the country to be shortlisted for the prestigious awards, which are organised by the National Apprenticeship Service.

Lucy’s success in being shortlisted followed an earlier win at the London NHS Apprentice Awards where she was recognised as “the London NHS Apprentice who has made the greatest contribution to the patient experience / service delivery over the year”.

The award was presented by NHS London Chief Executive Ruth Carnall in acknowledgement of Lucy’s “hard work and initiative”.

In addition Lucy also received a High Commendation Award in the category of, London NHS Apprentice of the Year, (under 25) which was presented by Tim Campbell, winner of the first series of BBC’s The Apprentice.

Following her achievements 19-year-old Lucy has been promoted to the role of HR Assistant and said of her success: “Winning the NHS London Apprentice of the year award was very unexpected. I am very proud of my achievements and I wouldn’t have been able to do all that I did in my role as the HR Apprentice if it wasn’t for my team whose continued support will always be of value to me. I can’t thank them enough.”
