Hundreds of people from across the North West came together to hear inspirational stories of adults who had been transformed by their learning experiences, and the impact this learning had on others.


Stacey Barnes took home the award for North West Apprentice of the Year in Health and Social Care. She was commended for the commitment she had shown to her own development as well as constantly inspiring others to give learning a go when mentoring and training new students and colleagues.


Phylis Ziswa’s award for First Steps into Employment in Health and Social Care marked the dedication she had shown to building a new life after arriving in the UK as an asylum seeker. Alongside her role as a Clinical Support Worker at Salford Royal Phylis acts as a community champion and encourages others to take the first steps back into learning and work.


Paul Renshaw, Director of Organisational Development and Corporate Affairs, at Salford Royal said, “We are extremely proud of Stacey and Phylis for their dedication to learning and commitment to inspiring others around them. They both demonstrate on a daily basis how learning and development really can change people’s lives, however difficult things may seem.


These awards are recognition of the huge personal investment that, not only Stacey and Phylis, but all adult learners show and how they continually motivate their colleagues as well as patients and service users too.”
