Ian White has won the 2014 PEME Apprentice of the Year Award. Ian joined PEME in June 2011 as a mature apprentice and has worked at several of PEME’s client sites during his apprenticeship and completed an Electrotechnical Apprenticeship through Wisbech College.
Ian’s outstanding achievement was conducting electrical Project Installations work to an extremely high standard. Ian embraced the challenges he faced, choosing to see them as opportunities to push himself forward and to prove himself.
PEME Managing Director, Ashley Maile, said: “We set-up the PEME Apprenticeship Scheme in 2006 to reinvigorate our engineering teams having recognised the vocational and personal benefits that apprenticeships provide in training and development. The PEME Apprentice of the Year Award showcases the commitment and capability of apprentices who have chosen this route to further their career prospects. Our warm congratulations go to Ian. Whilst our other apprentices are all a real testament to the exceptional apprenticeship schemes operated by PEME, our management team found that Ian was an outstanding candidate and a strong advocate for the PEME apprenticeship model. He has proved a worthy winner of this year’s award.”
Karen Pike, PEME Associate Director, with overall responsibility for the PEME apprenticeship scheme, said: “I am delighted for all our apprentices who were recognised this year, particularly for Ian who took the top spot. It was great to see the achievements of our apprentices being acknowledged and inspiring to see a new generation of technicians being awarded at the start of their careers. Their success is not only testament to the commitment and enthusiasm they have demonstrated throughout their apprenticeship training but also the sense of pride they bring to their work. As an integral part of our business, we are very proud of our apprentices and wish them all the best for a long and rewarding career.”
