Supply Chain Warehousing Apprentice, 19-year-old Billy Spencer from Doncaster, is awarded ‘Inspirational Apprentice of the Year 2022’
Billy has developed a more positive and ambitious outlook during his apprenticeship, and this award is given to recognise and celebrate his inspirational achievements.
Billy had struggled to find his direction in life, feeling like he didn’t have the motivation to give 100% to anything. Before coming to Central YMCA, Billy described his confidence as “at an all-time low”; he was struggling with his mental health, anxiety and talking to people, and was keeping a lot to himself. As a hands-on learner Billy wanted to find a vocation to thrive in, but felt undervalued in his previous job in a warehouse. He knew change began with an apprenticeship, so he enrolled as a Supply Chain Warehousing Apprentice.
