Berneslai Homes’ apprentice Jacob Fox was delighted to win the ‘Source Academy Apprentice of the Year’ award at Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce business awards.
IT apprentice Jacob won the award for his digital work, including working on a guide to using Facebook safely, which was co-produced with the learning disability advocacy group ‘Wednesday’s Voice’; and a project working with the NHS Sensory Impairment team to co-deliver training that raises awareness of sensory impairment and service access.
Berneslai Homes’ Digital Inclusion Co-ordinator Hannah Bailey said: “It’s great news that Jacob has won this award. In his time with us he has taken on all challenges with an inspiring passion, learned from them and adapted his own working style.
“He has made a significant impact and we are sure he will succeed at whatever he chooses to focus on in the future.”
