A Tower Hamlets employee has been recognised for her strong work ethic and ambition at the regional round of the National Apprenticeships Awards 2016.

Charlotte Vincett-Labone, from Bethnal Green, won the intermediate apprentice award at the ceremony, held at Aldersgate Conference Centre, St Pauls, on Monday evening.

“I have always had a strong interest in apprenticeships as I believe the work based knowledge gained during an apprenticeship is incredibly valuable and increases employability,” said Charlotte.

Charlotte will now be up for the national award, in January, after winning the regional accolade,
