Olympic athlete @ColinJackson CBE hosts award ceremony for the UK’s inspiring Apprentices and Trainees

Qube Learning Awards was hosted by Multiple Gold Medallist & World Record Holder Colin Jackson CBE

Leading training provider, Qube Learning, paid tribute to the UK’s Apprentices, Trainees and their employers, with an award ceremony at London’s Montcalm Hotel. The ceremony was hosted by Multiple Gold Medallist & World Record Holder Colin Jackson CBE who greeted the winners on stage with words of congratulations on their success and an award to walk away with. 

Colin has achieved great success over his career. Representing Great Britain and Wales, he won an Olympic silver medal, became world champion twice, World indoor champion once, went undefeated at the European Championships for 12 years and was a two-time Commonwealth champion. His world record of 12.91 seconds for the 110m hurdles stood for over a decade and he remains the 60 metres hurdles world record holder.

Speaking about the event, Colin said:

“When I was given the opportunity to host the Qube Awards, it was an easy choice for me. I know what it is to work hard from a young age, to prove myself and achieve my goals and this is exactly what every single one of the winners have shown. When I was younger, I was unsure of what I wanted to do but then I found sport and I knew I had found my passion. Many people today are also unsure of their career path, starting as a Trainee or Apprentice means you can gain knowledge in an area you are passionate about and passion leads to success.“

The awards ceremony was an occasion to recognise the hard work from individuals who have overcome challenges to carve out positive paths in their futures but also to congratulate the employers Qube Learning works with and their commitment to Apprentice and Trainee schemes within their businesses. 

CEO of Qube Learning Joe Crossley said:

“Each day we meet so many exceptional individuals who show great determination to get to where they want to be in their career. This awards ceremony gives us the opportunity to shout about their achievements and celebrate the hard work of both them, and their employers. Hearing some of the stories from the winners really shows how the right learning opportunities can help people to realise their potential and succeed in their future.”

With guests including Caring Homes Group and Ipswich Hospital, everyone enjoyed hearing the inspiring stories from the winners.
