Celebrating Excellence in Apprenticeships

As a forward-thinking service we’ve embraced a diverse range of apprentices across different departments, from Firefighters to ICT, Marketing and more! These talented individuals have brought fresh perspectives, diversity of thought, dedication, and innovation to our team.

This year, the NFCC (National Fire Chiefs Council) held an Apprenticeship Awards Ceremony, following on from their Annual Spring Conference for senior leaders within the Fire Services. The awards were open to all Fire Services across the country. We proudly put forward some of our awesome apprentices to recognise their outstanding achievements and contributions to our Service.

Let’s celebrate our remarkable nominees:
