On 5th June, at the House of Lords reception, apprentice Brandon Read was honoured as a top performing apprentice.

The reception aimed to showcase the commitment of apprentices and their employers, and demonstrate the success of Mansfield College group’s apprenticeship scheme. Thirty apprentices were selected from 12,000 to attend the prestigious event.

After Brandon completed a nine-month advanced apprenticeship in IT, Software, Web & Telecoms Professionals with NewVoiceMedia, a leading provider of cloud contact centre solutions, he was offered a permanent position as an IT assistant.

Graham Howe, managing director of Vision Workforce Skills, a subsidiary of the college group, said: “The House of Lords was the perfect place to celebrate the successes and outstanding achievements of our top-performing apprentices, as well as say thank you to their employers for giving them such a wonderful opportunity. Brandon has made an enormous contribution to NewVoiceMedia and is deserving of this high-profile recognition. We hope this event and Brandon’s success inspires other young people and employers to consider the benefits that apprenticeships bring to individuals and businesses.”

Gary Lane, Director of HR and Recruitment at NewVoiceMedia, said: “Brandon has been such an asset to NewVoiceMedia, bringing lots of enthusiasm and fresh new ideas to his role. We are thrilled that he’s been formally recognised for his hard work and contribution to the business, in such an exciting way.”
