Horticulture apprentice Jack Hubbard nominated for Special Recognition Award

We are proud to announce that Jack Hubbard, one of our Horticulture apprentices who works for Chatsworth House, has been nominated for the Special Recognition Award at the National Apprenticeship Service Awards.

The National Apprenticeship Awards are working with the Royal Navy this year to showcase inspiring stories of apprentices who have gone above and beyond during the Covid-19 pandemic. We believe that Jack’s determination, hard work studying at home and achieving a Distinction for his apprenticeship qualification throughout the COVID-19 lockdown earned him a worthy nomination for the award.

The Royal Navy and ESFA will be reading the apprentice submissions and selecting a winner. The deserving apprentice will be presented with the award on Wednesday 25th November 2020 in a virtual ceremony.

Jack’s employer Chatsworth, is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and is located in the Peak District National Park. The house, many of its contents and much of the surrounding landscape are leased to a registered charity, the Chatsworth House Trust. The Duke and Duchess pay rent to the charity to live at Chatsworth and work with the charity and others to welcome Chatsworth’s visitors.

Every penny of visitor admission goes directly to the Chatsworth House Trust, which is dedicated to the long-term preservation of Chatsworth House, the collections, garden, woodlands and park for the long-term benefit of the public. The charity promotes the study and appreciation of Chatsworth as a place of historic, architectural and artistic interest and of natural beauty, and encourages the use and enjoyment of Chatsworth by visitors for education and recreation.

We wish Jack the best of luck with his future career and nomination!

Jack is just one example of how successful our learners can be on their apprenticeships. If you are thinking about doing an apprenticeship please get in touch with us today.
