Our Business Apprentice Ben is a Winner!

Huge congratulations to Aardman Licensing Assistant Ben Townsend who won Business Apprentice of the Year and Apprentice of the Year across all categories at the #BBApprenticeshipAwards, which celebrates the best and brightest young learners.

The event was hosted by radio presenter Paris Troy. Winners included individuals and organisations from a wide variety of sectors - from construction to hospitality - who have managed to succeed despite the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Ben Townsend, a licensing assistant at Bristol-based Aardman Animations - the studio behind Oscar-winning characters Wallace and Gromit - was named Outstanding Apprentice of the Year for business, administrative and financial services, as well as the overall Bristol and Bath Apprentice of the Year.

Ben said "I am in disbelief about last night - I feel so fortunate to win Business Apprentice of the Year, but winning the Apprentice of the Year across all categories...I am speechless!

Thank you so much to my fantastic team at Aardman and everyone at the awards who put on a fantastic night. It was lovely to meet the other finalists - the scope of talent in that room was incredible, so I am truly honoured to be given these awards.

I will keep promoting #apprenticeships and feel honoured to be an ambassador.

Thank you to The Focus Training Group for all their support "
