And the winner is….Sara Ashbourne!
Sara Ashbourne, apprentice at Victoria Library, has won the award for ‘Apprentice of the Year’. Sara received the award from Cllr Philippa Roe, Leader of Westminster City Council, at the breakfast briefing for “Better City, Better lives”. The Leader set out the council’s priorities for 2014/15 and provided an update on the council’s corporate vision. The briefing was also an opportunity to celebrate the huge success of our apprenticeship scheme with an ‘Apprentice of the Year Award’.
The award went to Sara as she was able to demonstrate that she successfully supports the Council’s vision of Better City, Better lives and also demonstrates the Council’s values.
Sara’s contributions to Victoria Library have been invaluable. She has helped the library to meet many core objectives such as “increasing reading and learning opportunities for children and their families in Westminster”. Sara has the skills and ability to run and lead under 5 year old sessions. She has begun outreach sessions to the Cardinal Hume Centre’s nursery taking the library to the children.
Sara has also enhanced learning opportunities available to adults at Victoria library by setting up weekly computer training sessions for adults who have never used a computer before.
Sara has shown some wonderful skills and initiative in meeting many of the requirements and demands of today’s library users, and we’ve been honoured to have her on the team.
