BirminghamLive Apprenticeship Awards 2020

The second Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards took place on 27th November 2020 and celebrated the best and brightest learners and the people who are helping them to succeed. The annual awards, which were held online due to the coronavirus restrictions and hosted by Heart FM’s Ed James, were run by BirminghamLive in partnership with the Ladder for Greater Birmingham campaign featuring special guests, interactive activities and prize giveaways you can watch the awards back here.

They celebrated achievement across 11 categories for individuals, employers and training providers.

Our  full list of winners can be seen here and please see below highlighting our overall Apprentice of the Year.

An “inspiring” key worker who has juggled life as a father of three young children with completing an apprenticeship – all during a global pandemic – has been named our Birmingham Apprentice of the Year.

Mohammed Islam from West Midlands Ambulance Service won the Health, Education and Care category at tonight’s Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards 2020 before being picked from the five individual winners to take home the top honour.

Mohammed, 34, spent many years working in security at a hospital but felt unfulfilled so joined the West Midlands patient transport service in late 2018 and the following year began studying for a diploma in healthcare support.
