Apprentice of the Year Finalists off to Austria!

Is it really two months ago when we all met at the Houses of Parliament for the GTA England annual conference?

We were delighted with your responses to the introduction of the Apprentice of the Year Awards. At the conference we announced a special treat for each of the eight finalists (four from Engineering / Construction sectors and four from Business Services).

Since the event GTA England premium sponsor, WNT (UK) have confirmed the that the itinerary includes flights to Memmingen in Bavaria and 2 nights and 3 full days away in February 2015. A further article will feature the trips to state of the art manufacturing plant in Austria and logistics operation in Germany.

Reflecting on the conference, Amy West, winner of the Engineering / Construction Apprentice of the year said, “Spending the day in the Houses of Parliament was a great experience and I feel extremely proud to have won my award. I would strongly encourage anyone who is aiming for a challenging and exciting career to undertake an apprenticeship.”

Bobby Duff our Apprentice of the year for Business Services said, “The 14th October was an exceptionally special day, which will be cherished for many years.

The day as a whole was superb. The venue was amazing, and I feel very honoured to have been a guest at the Houses of Parliament – but to also be invited to sit-in the GTA England Conference – this was very intriguing; as I got an understanding of the larger picture for apprenticeships: information discussed, further up the hierarchy.”

Tony Pennington, MD at WNT(UK) has confirmed a commitment to reviewing next year’s trip and, subject to budgetary considerations, offering the experience to the finalists of the 2015 GTA England Apprentice of the year – better get a bigger mail box for the applications from members!
