2013 Apprentice(s) of the Year

Managers and Supervisors from all over PEME were asked to nominate apprentices who they felt had shown commitment, progress and enthusiasm throughout the year. The feedback, was interesting in that several apprentices received very favorable responses and as a result two apprentices have been selected to receive this year’s PEME Apprentice of the Year Award.

The 2013 award has been presented to Matt Allen and Connor Mills. Both are in the final year of their PEME Apprenticeship.

Connor Mills attends Tresham college where he is studying an Electrotechnical Apprenticeship which he started in September 2010. Connor has displayed a brilliant attitude to work and his college studies during the whole of his apprenticeship. He received one of the top scores in the annual assessment and it was due to this and his fantastic attitude that he was put forward for the ECITB World Skills challenge. Connor continually receives excellent feedback from both an attitude and technical point of view. He has great potential for further development.

Matt Allen attends Wisbech college and is studying a Mechanical Maintenance Apprenticeship which he started in September 2011. He was nominated because his attitude, enthusiasm and level of competence whilst working on very difficult tasks was exemplary. Matt has stood out as a very capable person who really enjoys his work and does not complain or shy away from the task in-hand. He was also commended for being polite, helpful and adaptable, with excellent attendance and time keeping. Matt also applies himself well at College and is often ahead with his work.

The awards were presented to Matt and Connor at our annual Apprentice evening which was attended by managers, supervisors and mentors; all of whom are involved in the delivery of the PEME apprenticeship programme, including representatives from the HR team, and of course, the apprentices themselves.
