Springboard and The PM Trust Awards

In partnership with Springboard, The PM Trust publically acknowledges young people’s achievements on the Kick-start programme -a three-week programme, assisting 16-24 year olds in finding employment and apprenticeship opportunities within the hospitality sector - through The PM Trust Awards. This awards scheme provides the young people involved with an additional sense of achievement, a goal to aspire to and – for the recipients of the awards – an additional ‘qualification’ to use as part of their employability package.

Launched in 2013, there are two award categories; 'The Rising Star Award,' recognises students who have gone the extra mile in the current year's programme, and the 'Star of the Future Award' recognises a student that has completed the programme in recent years and has since been striving to continue to excel in the hospitality industry.

We were honoured in 2015 to rename the Star of the Future Award to The Robyn Jones Star of the Future Award in memory of the late Robyn Jones OBE. Robyn was a long term Trustee of Springboard, a dedicated supporter of The PM Trust, and an icon in the catering industry.
