Engineering Training Centre Awards 2017

The 3rd Annual Appris Engineering Training Centre Awards took place on Monday 19th June 2017.  Shortlisting winners was as challenging as ever for the Tutors considering the high quality of students, but we are delighted to announce the following winners…

Joint Mechanical Learner of the Year

Luke Brown, Sulzer Pump

Through persistence, hard work and motivation to succeed, Luke has attained outstanding achievements and remarkable personal growth during their two years at Appris.  Luke is always willing to help, a role model for their peers, who has positive values and commitment and more importantly… a nice person.

Above all, Luke has demonstrates the skills, attributes and potential to be a leader in the future and contribute to the future well-being of the company.

Tom Rushworth, Sulzer Pump

Tom has always challenges himself to achieve the best they possibly can. An extremely hard working, talented, capable and trustworthy learner who is a real gentleman and indeed a model student in every capacity.

Electrical/Electronic Learner of the Year

Thomas Crossland, Logoplaste

Early on in the year it became apparent that some students were working to a very high standard which was above and beyond that required. Thomas has consistently been self-motivated and done a lot of his own research as well as listening and contributing constructively in class.

Thomas has never handed in an assignment late and all his answers have always been well thought out and logical. Thomas’ Maths and English are of a very high standard and all his work is presented in a neat and formal manner. Thomas is a very level headed and mature student who has been a pleasure to teach and to have in the class.

Thomas thoroughly deserves this award and I am sure he will go on to be successful in whatever he does.

Intermediate Apprentice of the Year

Stephanie Thorne, Dechra Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing

Stephanie has worked hard all year to achieve the highest standards both academically and practically.

Stephanie has the ability to lead from the front and has thought of others even when this has caused her more work.

Personal Achievement Award

Amelia Knight, Guyson International Limited

Amelia started off their engineering course here a little later than the rest of the group but finished it all before the others while achieving the necessary quality.  It was evident that Amelia had real ability and she realised that when she put her mind to something she could easily do the work but would sometimes would let themselves get caught up in distractions.

Amelia’s second year has been excellent as she displayed a really mature attitude to all elements of her work and study. She demonstrated that she has real engineering talent, both practically producing work to excellent standards but academically also.

Overall Training Centre Learner of the Year Award

Molly Midgley, Powell UK

Since starting at the Training Centre in September 2016, Molly set out with the intention of achieving the very highest standards of work achievable.  However, Molly didn’t just achieve this, she went on to achieve much more.

Her achievements include becoming a STEM Ambassador and delivering inspirational talks all around the Yorkshire region. Achieving the highest available criteria in all 11 BTEC subjects and practical work which is second to none in the 9 PEO units.

Molly has been totally outstanding in every aspect and an excellent ambassador for engineering apprenticeships.

Unfortunately Molly was unable to collect her award, which was collected by her employer representative, Helen Firth.
