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.”

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.”
