Celebrating a win at the Cambridgeshire Apprenticeship Awards

Greater Cambridge Shared Planning celebrates, as a talented apprentice takes home the Working with People award at the Cambridgeshire Apprenticeship Awards 2023.

Apprentices Tom Chenery, James Fisher and Charlene Harper of Greater Cambridge Shared Planning were all shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Apprenticeship Awards and the winners were announced at yesterday’s glittering awards ceremony (Wednesday 8 February) hosted by Cambridgeshire County Council.

The awards, coinciding with National Apprenticeship Week (6 to 12 February) are a chance to recognise, showcase and celebrate the commitment, hard work and achievements of individuals completing an apprenticeship and the organisations supporting apprenticeships.

Tom Chenery, our Senior Planning Officer, who recently completed a Level 7 Chartered Town Planning Apprenticeship, won the 'Working with People' award for his dedication to supporting customers. This award recognises individuals whose role requires them to support our citizens. Throughout their apprenticeship they have demonstrated 'putting people at the heart of everything they do'.

Judges also acknowledged Tom’s progression and determination to succeed, his resilience in adapting and overcoming personal challenges and his proven commitment to continued personal development.

An extended congratulations goes out to our apprentices who were shortlisted. James Fisher for the Behind the Scenes Award and Charlene Harper, for the Personal Achievement Award. Both James and Charlene have completed a Level 5 Departmental/Operations Management Apprenticeship and were nominated due to the outstanding contribution and dedication they have demonstrated within their apprenticeship roles.

Stephen Kelly, Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development for the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service said:

“Congratulations to Tom on his big win and to James and Charlene on their nominations.

We fully embrace apprenticeships, whether upskilling existing employees or for specific apprenticeship roles, we recognise the positive impact that apprenticeships can have.

We believe that hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

We are incredibly proud of all our talented apprentices and thank them for their hard work and dedication.”
