The 2019 University of Exeter Professional Services Recognition Awards (PSRA) took place on Friday 28 June with nearly 200 guests celebrating the outstanding achievements of colleagues.

The Apprentice of the Year Award seeks to acknowledge and celebrate an apprentice’s exceptional contributions to their workplace. The apprentice will need to either be currently undertaking an apprenticeship or have completed it within the last 12 months and will need to meet the following criteria:

  • Commitment: demonstrates commitment to your personal development and progression
  • Contribution: shows an outstanding contribution to your workplace – in particular, areas or projects where you have exceeded expectations
  • Success: demonstrates inspirational levels of achievement and attainment

This years winner was Amelia Ware, Apprentice Administrative Assistant (People Development).

Her citation read:

“Amelia is our Apprentice of the Year for going above and beyond to ensure the smooth running of courses in People Development, providing excellent customer service every day, and having a great positive impact on her team. She deals with anything which comes in at the last minute with a positive, can-do attitude, and took on the challenge of working in an office after coming from the retail sector, learning new skills needed for her new role very quickly. Amelia also built excellent relationships with our Learning & Development Managers, which in turn has enabled them to step back from some of the day to day issues, and her willingness to learn has shone through”.


Last years winner was Maddy Geen.  Read about Maddy here.
