Award for Trust apprentice

Russell Challis has been named Apprentice of the Month by the organisation that oversees his training for The Cam Academy Trust.

The 19-year-old former Comberton Village College student is training as an IT technician with Trust and is currently based at Cambourne Village College.

He was chosen as the March winner after being nominated by his tutor from 3AAA who regularly visits to monitor Russell’s progress and was impressed by his effectiveness during a session shadowing him.

Trust IT Manager Paul Middleton said: “Russell has excelled at everything we’ve thrown at him and done it with a smile on his face.

“I can see a very bright future for him and hopefully many years of working within our trust as a highly valued member of our team.

“The award he has received is very well deserved and I look forward to seeing him continue learning and progressing through our ranks!”

Russell, who started the course in July and will finish in the autumn, won £25 Amazon vouchers.
