We are delighted to announce the joint winners at the Apprentice of the Year Awards – Danny Chambers and Brad Hemmings – selected from the Craft and Technical Apprentices.
Both were extremely worthy winners, presenting their recent projects to a panel of judges which comprised of their sponsors, Mark Egglestone and Carl Roberts as well as George Hodgson, Paul Lacy, and Alan Mather.
Due to Danny and Brad demonstrating two very diverse nature projects extremely well showcasing their natural flair and extensive skillset, it made it difficult for the judges to separate the two finalists resulting in them a unanimous decision being made to announce them joint winners.
Danny excellently presented his project which involved the design, manufacture, build and assembly of a Crane Gantry Walkway and Access Ladder installation within the RUBB building. He led the team through all stages from planning and safety reviews through to third party proof load testing and sign off.
Brad also gave a superb account of his project which involved a review of the discipline integration on MTE’s project with Amec Foster Wheeler assessing wider reaching implications. This also included 3D model process options and a number of suggestions for improving the processes and QMS. As we continue with the project in the coming months, Brad’s input will be developed further.
We feel privileged to have acquired such talent to add to our world class team at MTE and want to congratulate both Danny and Brad and all of our other apprentices that have demonstrated great commitment throughout the year.
We are continually impressed by the talent that comes through each year and feel it is important to present these awards to showcase and give recognition to our apprentices for their performance and dedication to the business. We remain to provide extensive support and implement training to broaden prospects for apprentices and propel young people into a future career in the sector.
