IMG_0060Blackburn with Darwen Council apprentice Henry Clark has won a national competition to be named Apprentice of Year.

The 20 year-old has won recognition in the Business Services Category at the Apprentice of the Year Awards run by Group Training Associations (GTA).

There are three categories; Engineering, Construction and Business Services.

He was presented with his trophy by MP Nick Boles, Minister of State for Skills at an event in London last week and he also won an adventure holiday.

Henry was nominated for by Training 2000 for the work he has done in promoting apprenticeships to other young people in the borough and work he has done on a revision ‘app’ for smart phones called Licence to Learn designed to help students prepare for exams.

Currently he is studying for his Level 4 in Business and Administration at Training 2000 and is employed by the Council’s Economic Regeneration and Business team.

He has been at the Council since he was aged 16 during which time he has won several other awards.

They include Regional Apprentice of the Year in 2013, followed by an Advanced Achiever of The Year in 2014.

Henry said:

“It was a huge surprise to receive this award and great to meet colleagues in London.

“I look forward to working with GTA England and other apprenticeship ambassadors in the near future, and hopefully we’ll be able to launch our app on the marketplace soon!”
