A West Suffolk College student has been offered a permanent role in health secretary Matt Hancock’s office after completing an apprenticeship with the MP.

Chloe Osborne-Wilson, 21, was awarded a triple distinction for her business administrator level three apprenticeship as a caseworker within Mr Hancock's office.

Miss Osborne-Wilson, from Newmarket, started the apprenticeship after first studying beauty and realising it was not the path she wanted to take. She said: "The apprenticeship at Matt's office gave me a chance to explore a role that interested me, that without an apprenticeship would not have been available.

"The apprenticeship has helped me to understand how a real working environment works, whilst still learning and developing my skills.

"The support from my tutor Rebecca has been amazing, I could not have completed my apprenticeship without her and the support of the college."

Rebecca Mann, programme tutor in business administration and customer service at the college, said: "Chloe has undergone a significant learning journey as one of the first apprentices to go through the new EPA process. "She has shown huge resilience and optimism throughout her course having to adapt to a very challenging yet unique role. We are very proud of her."

Mr Hancock, MP for West Suffolk, said: "I'm so proud of Chloe, my apprentice, who got a triple distinction in her apprenticeship at West Suffolk College.
