Apprenticeship Awards / Gwobrau Prentisiaeth

Huge congratulations to Joanne Satherley from Duffryn Community Link who is one of over 2,600 Apprentices based in Wales who recently won the Higher Apprentice Award which recognises the achievements of a standout apprentice working towards their Level 4 qualification or above.

Joanne excelled in taking the orgainsisation forward to extend its reach at a time when Duffryn Community Link was going through a lot of internal and external changes. As a working Mum of 3 children she met deadlines and completed associated paperwork, helping other members of staff with their own personal development and deliver a a much-enhanced CPD programme. Needless to say Duffryn’s trustees were very impressed and subsequently elevated Joanne to CEO, which is a huge achievement and excellent career opportunity for her.
