Honour for female apprenticeship champion

A leading apprenticeship advocate has today been named CBE for services to the sector in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Anna Morrison CBE, has devoted herself to challenging negative perceptions around apprenticeships.

Regarded as one of the leading influencers of the apprenticeships agenda, Anna has helped challenge traditional thinking to reposition apprenticeships as a first choice for young people.

Anna Morrison CBE said:

Apprenticeships are amazing. They bring huge opportunities to apprentices and employers alike and genuinely have the power to change lives for the better. I feel so privileged to have been recognised for working on something which I love.

I hope that through this award I will be able to inspire more parents, teachers, employers and young people about the benefits of apprenticeships.

Anna’s contribution to the education sector spans 20 years and includes setting up Amazing Apprenticeships in 2015, an organisation that provides high quality apprenticeship resources to teachers.

In the past two years alone, Anna has supported nearly 4,000 secondary schools and over 700,000 students through the Apprenticeship Support & Knowledge for schools and colleges programme (ASK).
