A Hull College Apprentice and the School of Construction have once again been recognised with a pair prestigious Golden Apple Awards.

The Golden Apple Awards celebrate the great work and dedication of the region’s teachers, young people and organisations who work tirelessly throughout every school year.

Now in its fourth year, the awards have become a much sought after and prestigious accolade.

During a spectacular event at Hull’s Grange Park Hotel, hosted by the BBC’s Keely Donovan, the best and the brightest of Hull and East Yorkshire’s education sector met to celebrate their work and achievements.

Once again, The Job Club, created by tutor Darren Storrer, was recognised with the Community Award for the work they have completed alongside Rooted in Hull.

Rooted in Hull is a social enterprise created to combat poverty in the city by providing mobile planters made from shipping containers for local communities to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Also on the receiving end of a Golden Apple award was Hull College Apprentice Josh Hunter.

Josh was awarded with the Apprentice of the Year Award in recognition of his achievements in the 2017 WorldSkills competition, which saw him represent the UK in the Brickwork category at the finals in Abu-Dhabi.

The awards were judged by a four-strong panel including Greenway Academy headteacher Simon Bush, Dorchester Primary Headteacher Gabby Olsson, Hull City Council’s director of children, young people and family services, Alison Murphy and Sewell’s Martin Stead.
