A Chartered Management Degree Apprentice from the BAE Systems Shared Services business based in Preston has been named as a finalist in the Management, Legal and Professional Services category for The BAME Apprenticeship Awards 2021.


Ammaarah Patel joined BAE Systems in 2018 on the Company’s Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship programme.

During her apprenticeship, she has worked across a number of areas within the Shared Services business including IT, Early Careers, Recruitment and Finance.

The awards, in partnership with Pearson, showcase the outstanding work and achievements of apprentices from black and minority ethnic groups (BAME) and inspire BAME apprentices to reach their full potential.

The Awards are organised by The BAME Apprentice Network who aim to close the diversity gap in apprenticeships by supporting apprentices and working with employers to make meaningful change.

Ammaarah said: “I am really excited to be shortlisted as a finalist for The BAME Apprenticeship Awards. I think it’s a great opportunity to showcase the achievements of BAME talent whilst resetting misconceptions around apprenticeships.

“During my apprenticeship I’ve been able to experience several areas of our Shared Services business, working on exciting projects and learning from many inspirational people. This is all whilst gaining a degree in Business Management with Chartered accreditation.”

The results of the awards are due to be announced in September.
