Oxford Health NHS worker clinches apprenticeship award

An Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust worker has taken a top prize for her work to encourage more apprentices to start a career in health.

Becky Elsworth, Oxford Health’s Apprenticeship Manager, outshone tough competition to secure the Apprenticeship Champion Award which recognises individuals who have gone the extra mile at this challenging time to keep learners in their apprenticeships and to continue championing apprenticeships as a fantastic career choice.

The Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards is run by OxLEP – the county’s local enterprise partnership – to celebrate the achievements of apprentices across Oxfordshire. Each of the award categories are sponsored by local businesses.

Becky said: “I am overjoyed to receive this reward and truly humbled to be chosen as the winner and to be nominated by my team. I am proud to work for such a hardworking and determined team. The dedication of each individual apprentice allows us to continue to grow and offer more potential career opportunities to others.”

Congratulations also go to Susan Halliwell and Jane Szluha – two more Oxford Health colleagues who were nominated.
