Doncaster College, who awarded Miss Wiles with the award, said: “This apprentice demonstrated the value she gave to her studies, based upon her excellent attitude to learning and the precise detail she added to her coursework and assignments.

“She thoroughly enjoyed her learning and reflected in detail on the impact that each piece of learning had on her job role and her future. She completed her level 2 Business

Administration in advance of her original expected end date and was chomping at the bit to start her level 3 as soon as she could.”
