It’s far too late to say this, but we will anyway – Happy New Year!

The North East Apprenticeships Ambassador Network rounded off 2021 with a bang and we’re all fully focussed on carrying our momentum into 2022.

As last year drew to a close, it was incredible to see Ian Green named Apprentice Champion of the Year at the National Apprenticeship Awards, with commendations also going to McCarrick Construction, Eden McGlen of Unipres UK and Kate Todd-Davies of Rolls Royce.

We were all delighted with the appointment of Natasha Scorer as our new Young Ambassador Chair. Natasha will be a first-class Chair for the YAAN network and I’m certain that colleagues will join me in congratulating her on this new role and provide her with help and support moving forward.

Working with Natasha is always an absolute delight, having known her for a long time and worked together on our NEAAN Governance Board. Her enthusiasm, commitment and ever-developing experience has been invaluable over the years and I’m genuinely looking forward to what she will bring this role.

Natasha’s appointment follows the departure of Emma Beauchamp, who is the new Co-Vice Chair of the National Apprenticeship Ambassador Network. A new role to enable her to lead on national issues. Emma rounded off an incredible 2021 when she received a BEM in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours.

The first order of 2022 for us has been to drive forward our preparation for National Apprenticeship Week, which starts on February 7. Stay tuned for an exciting schedule of events and plans, which we will unveil soon!
