People 1st Apprenticeship Awards 2014/2015

The People 1st Apprenticeship Awards 2014/2015 were hosted at the House of Commons by MP Mike Freer. The awards recognise outstanding apprentices, mentors and employers from the hospitality, retail, passenger transport and travel industries.

Down to exceptional achievements within the Travel Advanced Apprentice category, three went through to the final – as opposed to two…with all three finalists from TUI UK & Ireland Retail!

  • Olivia Barnsley (Derby 882)
  • Thomas Newby (Sheffield 595)
  • Samantha Reed (Bristol 1527)

When asked why all 3 finalists were from TUI, Simon Tarr (MD of People 1st) commented that it was all down to the quality and evidence in each case and that it was right that they were all present.

Vicky Wolf from ABTA had joined the event and had the pleasure of announcing that the overall Award Winner for Travel Advanced Apprentice was Olivia Barnsley.

Congratulations to Olivia in receiving such a great achievement and the much deserved recognition.
