Oluchi Ogbonna wins NW Skills Development’s Informatics Apprentice of the Year Award

The North West Skills Development Network’s Connect Conference was once again a great success, with Oluchi Ogbonna from NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, winning the Informatics Apprentice of the Year Award. The annual event showcases developments made in skills in the North West alongside praising people who have made exceptional achievements.

The Informatics Apprentice of the Year Award asks organisations to nominate apprentices based on the following criteria:

  • Contribution to the workplace, in particular areas or projects where expectation has been exceeded
  • Qualities, strengths and talents the apprentice has brought to the organisation
  • Success through exceptional levels of achievement and attainment both in learning and in the workplace
  • How the apprentice has contributed to achieving the objectives of the team and the impact on the organisation
  • How the apprentice has benefitted from the apprenticeship, including personal progression, positive actions taken and personal achievements
  • Commitment to personal development and progression
  • Future career planning

Throughout her Level 2 Informatics and Level 3 Software Development Technician, and Level 4 Data Analyst apprenticeships with Estio, Oluchi has displayed many of these attributes.

Estio have been proud partners with the NHS for over five years and have formed a brilliant working connection with them, which is why we’re always pleased to see our NHS learners succeed. We continue to work with the NHS annually, helping to deliver digital skills to many organisations across the nation.
