Jodie wins 'Apprentice of the Year'
CWP Contracts Project Officer Jodie Breen has been named ‘Apprentice of the Year’ by a local college.
Jodie, from Ellesmere Port, won ‘Apprentice of the Year’ in the ‘Business’ category of the Celebrating Achievement Student Success Awards 2017, hosted by Wirral Metropolitan College.
Jodie won the prestigious award after completing her Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship whilst on placement at CWP.
Jodie said: “Winning this award is a real achievement. I have worked hard for two years and it has finally all paid off.
“Thank you to CWP and Wirral Met for giving me this opportunity and for believing in me and supporting me every step of the way.
“My apprenticeship experience at CWP has been amazing. I’ve been given so many opportunities and it’s been a great opportunity to meet new people and gain useful qualifications that can help me progress further in my career.”
The 23-year-old was nominated for the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award by Wirral Met Tutor Linda Whiffen, who said: “Jodie is a keen and motivated learner who fully engaged in her studies to secure a fantastic career opportunity.
“She has grown in confidence over the last two years and excelled in the challenges of her new role.
“We’re thrilled that Jodie has secured a permanent role at CWP. It is thoroughly deserved after she showed such dedication and first-class performance throughout her apprenticeship.”
Jodie completed an intermediate apprenticeship with CWP in 2015 before qualifying from her second, advanced level apprenticeship in April this year. She now enjoys her permanent role as Contracts Project Officer at the mental health Trust.
Jodie’s new role is to handle contract data, exception reports and Service Level Agreements between CWP and its partners. She also supports contract managers across the Trust.
CWP Head of Effective Services Tracey Collins added: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch Jodie grow in confidence and competence during her apprenticeship.
“The whole team is delighted that she is now a permanent member of staff and we are all very proud of her achievements.”
