For the second year running, I was thrilled and genuinely humbled to discover that I had been nominated by a senior manager, to be recognised in the ‘Apprentice of the year’ category of the NPS group annual staff ‘Excellence awards’.
Whilst this is an internal award, it gave me a huge boost that I was managing to fulfil my role effectively, this despite also juggling my studying toward my Masters degree.
In a fantastic evening, held at our recently completed ‘International Aviation Academy Norwich’, of which I also had an involvement in the design process, I moved from ‘nominated’ to became a successful finalist, just missing out on the award, despite coming closer than the year before, which was a fantastic feeling. It was a great evening celebration with my colleagues, congratulations to those of whom did win an award.
Here’s to working toward a final year on my Masters degree and aiming for a third years nomination!
