A business admin apprentice with Bradford District Care Trust has been shortlisted for Regional Advanced Apprentice of the Year Award by NHS Health and Education Yorkshire and Humber.

Courtenay White faces tough competition from two other candidates with different NHS backgrounds.

“It feels great to be shortlisted for an award when there are so many other brilliant apprentices out there,” said Courtenay, a Shipley College student studying for level three NVQ in Business Administration.

“Winning would be a great achievement but being shortlisted highlights that my work within the trust is valued.”

Courtenay was nominated by Foundation Trust membership and governance manager Stella Jackson who believes “she truly deserves recognition for her role.”
