We’re thrilled to announce Ashton McConnell has won another award! Ashton started at SS&L as a trainee and has since progressed onto a level 3 apprenticeship. She has now won the Overcoming Barriers Award at the Somerset Education Business Partnership Awards 2020, which took place online yesterday evening. The virtual event didn’t stop Ashton celebrating in style!

Already winning Trainee of the Year at the Grow Somerset Talent Awards in February, we’re delighted that Ashton has gone on to receive this award. It proves that it’s possible overcome barriers and difficulties to succeed and is testament to Ashton’s commitment, strength and determination.

She was supported throughout her traineeship to reach her full potential, gaining maths and English qualifications which enabled her to progress onto her level 3 apprenticeship in childcare.
