Education Awards winners

Celebrating learning successes

Each year, we celebrate the educational successes of our employees at an awards ball. However, due to the pandemic, these celebrations couldn't go ahead.

So that our 2020 winners didn't miss out, head of workforce development Karen Gardner has been out and about across the region to surprise our winners and present them with their trophies.
