Giannini Chambers is studying at the College of North West London,
A student studying in Brent has been named London’s best apprentice by a national training organisation.
Training charity JTL recognised the achievements of Giannini Chambers, a student at the College of North West London, which has campuses in Willesden and Wembley, by rewarding him with a trophy and cheque for �700.
Mr Chambers said: “I am incredibly pleased with my award and proud of what I’ve achieved so far, but mindful that where I am is not the end but the beginning.
“Throughout my apprenticeship I’ve always tried to apply myself, especially in areas I did not feel initially confident in after leaving school.”

He said: “You get out of an apprenticeship only what you put in and the harder you work the more you receive.”

Speaking after handing out the awards, Denis Hird, JTL’s chief executive, said: “We work with over 6,500 very talented young people nationwide, so it’s a real achievement to have won this award.”
