SOUTH Eastern Regional College (SERC) apprentice Lauren Johnston has won the Apprentice of the Year Award at the Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Awards 2022, which recognises excellence in apprenticeships.
Lauren, 23, from Comber, is completing the Level 3 Engineering Apprenticeship at SERC’s Lisburn campus and is employed by Diageo at its beer packaging site in Belfast.
The young woman was one of three finalists in the apprentice category of the Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Awards, a key part of the Northern Ireland Apprenticeship Week, February 7-11, led by the Department of Economy. Winners were announced at a live-streamed Awards Ceremony hosted by Minister Gordon Lyons, presented by Sarah Travers, and former two-weight world champion boxer Carl Frampton was in attendance.
Ken Webb, Principal and Chief Executive of SERC, said: “Congratulations to Lauren on this Apprenticeship Award.
“Not only has Lauren proved to be a top apprentice but she has become an ambassador for women in engineering and a perfect example of anything is possible when you have determination.”
