Bukky Shonola wins ‘Accounting Apprentice Employer of the Year’ and ‘Overall Apprentice Employer’ awards.
TaxAssist Accountant, Bukky Shonola has been recognised at the Cambridge Regional College Apprenticeship Awards 2022, winning ‘Accounting Apprentice Employer of the Year’ and ‘Overall Apprentice Employer’.
Bukky, who operates two TaxAssist Accountants shops based in Letchworth and Hitchin, employs three members of staff, two of whom are apprentices, Amadou Jallow and Sean Abraham.
Bukky said: “We are very proud of our apprentices and their achievement so far and they are valuable members of the team. Both Amadou and Sean have the potential to become permanent employees in the practice, pending completion of their AAT qualification. It is fulfilling to see them develop as part of the organisation.
“Our apprentices dream of becoming qualified accountants and our goal is to help them achieve that, with the AAT apprenticeship programme giving them the strong foundation they need to be able to do this.
“Training is provided to develop individual skills such as communication, organisation, and teamwork, and our apprentices do very well at work and in college.”
Cambridge Regional College Deputy Principal, Michelle Dowse, said: “The achievement of both apprentices and employers has been magnificent. Many of the apprentices started their studies in the pandemic and have since demonstrated their resilience and ability to manage to change as the world returned to business as usual. I am proud to offer my heartfelt congratulations to all winners.”
The awards celebrate outstanding apprentice achievement, and the exceptional commitment shown by the employers that support them.
