Our Apprentice of the Month Award is an opportunity for the spotlight to shine on one of our current apprentices who has worked hard, accomplished, applied themselves or has achieved something fantastic whilst on programme. This is an opportunity to celebrate apprenticeships and their value, not only for the learner but also for the employer and the business they work within.

In order to be awarded Apprentice of the Month, learners can be nominated by their TDM coach, other TDM members of staff who have come into contact with the apprentice and also from their mentor, employer or colleagues they work along side.

Apprentice of the Month – April

Our Apprentice of the Month Award for April goes to Liam Rushton from St Richards Hospice. Liam is a Degree Level Apprentice currently on his Digital & Technology Solutions Professional Degree Apprenticeship via the Cyber pathway.

Liam’s nomination came through his TDM coach, who wanted to highlight his hard work, his “superb technical knowledge” and his dedication to his role at St Richards.


“Liam is an absolute, top class apprentice and a really nice guy who works so hard on every task that is placed in front of him.”

“He has superb technical knowledge and is always willing to help other apprentices where and if he can.”
“Liam has also shown a lot of determination to not to let the current pandemic affect him and his role, going above and beyond to work towards his apprenticeship.”
“As part of his apprenticeship Liam underwent a Network Course – he gave a solid demonstration of his extensive network setup at home – his Network Engineer coach, Julie, was suitably impressed.”
Congratulations Liam!
