STFC wins Apprentice Employer Award
29 Oct 2020



STFC's Apprentice scheme and Dame Julia Higgins have been recognised in the 2020 Institute of Physics Awards


​STFC have been recognised for providing a wide range of apprenticeships across the country, giving young people and adults the opportunity to expand their knowledge and confidence whilst being trained in exceptional facilities.​ What makes this award even more special is that it was given thanks to nominations from our own apprentices. 

We would also like to congratulate Dame Julia Higgins, a regular ISIS user, who​​ has been awarded the 2020 Sam Edwards Medal and Prize​ for her pioneering work in neutron scattering applied to the understanding of polymer structure and dynamics.​ Dame Julia was not only a pioneer of the use of neutrons in polymer sciences, but many current major ISIS users started in her group.​

Here you can see the full list of IOP award winners, and greater detail on STFC's winning case​. ​You can find out more about the STFC Apprenticeship scheme on the STFC website.
