Pythagoras Employee Named Microsoft Apprentice of the Year

We would like to extend our congratulations to Kimberley Bolton who has been awarded Microsoft Apprentice of the Year.

Kimberley received her award from Home Secretary, Theresa May and Microsoft UK Managing Director, Michel Van der Bel at a ceremony at the House of Commons on June 23 2014.

Theresa May said: “Apprenticeships are incredibly important in helping young adults to develop skills in the workplace. Apprenticeships are hands-on and so much more about understanding what the working environment is all about.”

On receiving her award Kimberley outlined how she came to the decision to sign up to the apprenticeship scheme, she said: “becoming an IT apprentice is the best thing i have ever done. I have gone from having no confidence and no iT knowledge to winning Microsoft Apprentice of the year. I have  really had to push myself, and now it has all paid off.”
