Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service apprentice wins award

We are very proud to say that one of the Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service apprentices, Mehreen Ayub, recently won Best Apprentice in the Retail, Hospitality and Tourism category at this year’s Asian Apprenticeship Awards, a national competition that recognises the best of the best apprentices across the country.

Whilst studying for A-levels Mehreen decided the academic route just wasn’t satisfying her hunger to hone her skills and gain relevant experience. Mehreen said the apprenticeship offered by our Adult Learning Service proved to be a quicker route to furthering her career than university. Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service found a job with training for Mehreen with Admiral Recruitment, a leading City based recruitment consultancy servicing high profile household names in the hospitality, leisure and catering industries.

Mehreen has now passed her qualification and has a permanent job with Admiral with an increased salary, and says she is staying with the company and has her eye on the CEO role! We are all hugely proud of Mehreen and the Apprenticeship team who supported her.
