02 March 2016     JTL

Mitchell Shore was named as JTL's Apprentice of the Year 2015 at yesterday's National Awards ceremony at Drapers' Hall in London, with nearly 150 guests in attendance.

The national event took place following the 16 JTL Regional Graduation ceremonies that were held across England and Wales towards the end of last year and earlier this year.

Derby-based electrician Mitchell, 22, fought off stiff competition from five other regional winners to scoop the prestigious title, having completed his apprenticeship with M&R Electrical Ltd in Burton-on-Trent, under the guidance of his JTL Training Officer Peter Bunting.

Mitchell and the other five finalists - Daniel Hooper, Ryan Cormican, Neil Richardson, Samantha Jones and Daniel Herridge - were all highly commended by JTL Chief Executive Jon Graham, who praised the hard work and dedication of all six individuals.

There were also awards handed out to other outstanding JTL learners on various programmes. Miles Phillips-Mee was given the award for best traineeship, with Karim Hughes and Ryan Reeman picking up the prizes for best full-time electrical student and MES (Mechanical Engineering Services) student, respectively.

With all six of the Apprentice of the Year finalists electrical apprentices, there was also a separate award for best MES apprentice, which was presented to Curtis Clarke, employed by Kier Sheffield.

The ceremony also provided an opportunity for JTL to recognise the hard work and commitment to training of some of the employers we work with, with an employer for each of JTL's six regions presented with an award. 

P O'Neill Electrical & Mechanical picked up the prize in JTL's London & East of England region, with CBRE Group and Interserve taking the awards in the Southern and Midlands areas respectively. JA Richardson Electrical Ltd were the North East & Yorkshire winner, with PPS Electrical Limited taking the award in the North West, and RDM Electrical & Mechanical Services picking up the prize in Wales. There was also a seperate award for MES employers, which went to Kingstown Works Ltd.

JTL would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who came along to yesterday's ceremony, and once again to congratulate all of our award winners and finalists.
