Trainee shortlisted at Inspirational Student Awards

Out of over 400 applications, Trainee Business & Marketing Assistant Bradley Longford has been shortlisted at Sheffield Hallam University’s Inspirational Student Awards.

Currently in his second year studying Professional Practice in Management, Bradley has championed apprenticeships, travelling around the region educating prospective learners and their parents, as well as employers and governing bodies. Bradley’s work has led him to Chair of the Yorkshire and Humber Young Apprenticeship Ambassador Network where he continues to demonstrate his advocacy for the apprenticeship programme through developing and driving his local network and its members.

The Inspirational Student Awards (ISAs) are a way to formally recognise and celebrate amazing students who have made a real difference to their fellow students, staff, local community, employers and beyond.

The work I do for apprenticeships is simply my passion! I feel incredibly fortunate to be in a position to express this in my role, and it’s a great honour to be recognised for my work. I wish all the finalists the best of luck!
