Gemma Cryer, an advanced apprentice in pharmacy, was crowned Clinical Apprentice of the Year at the awards, held at the end of National Apprenticeship Week 2013 at the Marriott Hotel, Leeds.
Colleague Vicky Kerrigan, also an advanced pharmacy apprentice, was highly commended in the same category.
Richard Evans was awarded the prize for the apprentice ‘who has made the most impact after qualifying’.
Richard, a pharmacy technician at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, completed his apprenticeship at Bradford College and has since gone on to gain a number of Medicines Management accreditations.
The Partnership Award went to Bradford College Vocational Science Department, City Training Services (the college’s apprenticeship provider) and the University of Leeds Pharmacy Development Unit.
The award was in recognition of the team’s work for pharmacy apprenticeships for the NHS in Yorkshire and Humber. In addition, Bradford College was highly commended at the awards event for its apprenticeship provision.
