NPEU wins big at Oxford University’s 4th Annual Apprenticeship Awards and Graduation Ceremony

Katherine receiving her award at the Sheldonian ceremony.

We are delighted to announce that we received two awards at the University of Oxford’s 4th Annual Apprenticeship Awards and Graduation Ceremony. Our very own Katherine Whitcher, Apprentice Software Developer and Tester, took home the Best Poster award for a poster submission illustrating her personal apprenticeship journey in NPEU. Sarah Chamberlain and Andy Kirk both won the Apprenticeship Manager Award. Sarah is NPEU’s Graphic and Multimedia Designer and Andy is the manager for NPEU’s designs, publications and website.

This year’s award ceremony was held on the 7th of December at the Sheldonian Theatre. It brought together apprentices and their family members, among others, to celebrate the continuing successful work of the University’s apprenticeship programme. Further information about the ceremony is available on the University of Oxford website.

Well done Katherine, Sarah and Andy!

Trials that matter… INFANT

The INFANT study has been featured on the MoreTrials website under a series called ‘Trials that matter’.  The INFANT study, which involved NPEU researchers Ed Juszczak, Louise Linsell and Maria Quigley, recruited more than 47,000 women and assessed whether automated computerised interpretation of the fetal heart rate during labour improved major outcomes such as neonatal death and child development at age 2.
