Two of our apprentices were recognized at the WCCA (Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects) Architecture Apprentice Awards 2024, held last week at Temple Bar, London.

Architectural Assistant & Level 6 Apprentice Jess Fuller was awarded the title of WCCA Part 1 Apprentice Employee of the Year in recognition of her outstanding performance throughout her apprenticeship. The judging panel particularly noted her views on access to the profession and her stewardship in promoting the apprenticeship route. She has engaged with charities and secondary schools to promote this route, demonstrating her commitment to fostering opportunities for aspiring professionals.

Director of Practice, Helen Taylor, says:

“Having joined us with no previous architectural experience, Jess has impressed us- and our clients- from the outset with her confidence, positivity and “can do” attitude. She is a great example for how the apprenticeship scheme creates important alternative routes into the profession and has demonstrated her commitment to passing on her experience to improve access to architectural education for others."

Architectural Assistant & Level 7 Apprentice Jack Taafe also received a commendation for his contributions to residential, film studio, life science and education projects and his positive approach to his work within Scott Brownrigg. He is very driven and is regularly keen to assist on different projects and gets involved in practice-wide initiatives.

 Of Jack, Helen says:

"He is also a great example of the flexibility of the apprenticeship scheme- having joined us part-way through his Level 7 journey, seeking to diversify his experience and opportunities while pursuing his qualification. He has shown great initiative- gaining experience in three different sectors and his graphic and technical skills are in demand.”

We are delighted to celebrate these awards for our apprentices who demonstrate the value and importance of the degree apprenticeship scheme in providing an alternative route to qualification, fully integrated in the life and demands of architectural practice
