We’re proud to announce our very own PR Apprentice Will Darby has been crowned London’s Apprentice Champion of the Year on Monday 16th October 2017. Will is a proactive promoter of apprenticeships, and has even taken his acquired talents further by helping other young people find their feet in life through an online advice service called Siblings101.
Will termed the award “a profound and meaningful milestone for someone who wasn’t particularly motivated at school”, and what a comeback this is!
“Although I’d love to take all the credit, I simply couldn’t have achieved this feat without the support and guidance that I received from both the PRCA and Golin. From the word go, I’ve been influenced by the most dedicated and talented practitioners within the PR industry. The programme transformed my confidence and aspirations, I’m relishing the present and excited by the future.”
National Apprenticeship Awards are designed to celebrate apprentices who have gone above and beyond to champion apprenticeships outside of their everyday job. The requirements are that the apprentice is “beyond average” and serves as an ambassador of the route they’ve chosen – an apprenticeship.
Well done from all of us at the PRCA, Will. Now on to the Nationals in January 2018!
