Clare Vertigen, director of the South West Apprenticeships Company claimed the outstanding contribution award at the Bristol and Bath Apprenticeships award last week.

It comes less than two months after she received the same award at the Gloucestershire awards in March.

The South West Apprenticeships Company has supported more than 2,000 businesses across the region and provided advice to thousands of young people looking for work.

Ms Vertigen works closely with training providers and colleges to support the increase of apprentice take-up across the region and is a familiar face to countless business across the South West.

One of those trusted contacts is Miriam Venner, vice principal of apprenticeships and skills at City of Bristol College who paid tribute to Ms Vertigen for scooping the award double.

She said: "We are really pleased to see Clare win this award as it shows that her commitment to apprenticeships is recognised across the region.

"Clare works tirelessly to support apprentices and their employers and has expertly steered the SWAC team to become a leading force in the sector.

"Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and its great to see that this is highly valued."
