Recently I attended the Strategic Transport Apprenticeship Taskforce Annual report – Three years of progress event.
This was my third year on the board, I joined the board as a Crossrail apprentice when I worked at Tottenham Court Road and I have been a board member since. Our main objective is to get more apprentices into transport.

The event was hosted by the brilliant Mike Brown who sits also as the chair of STAT.
I was fortunate enough to chair a panel of 4 brilliant apprentices
Who spoke about their experience of apprenticeships and what changes we can make for all, it was very thought provoking for all in the room.
We were followed by the brilliant Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE who as well as many other things is the Lord – Lieutenant if Greater London, he shared some brilliant thoughts on apprenticeships and social justice.
A great event to celebrate the panels third year of progress towards more apprenticeships in transport.
