Twelve apprentices from across England and Wales have been recognised in the JTL Regional and National Awards for demonstrating high levels of achievement and commitment to learning throughout their apprenticeships.
The twelve regional winners, who have completed electrical, plumbing & heating and engineering maintenance apprenticeships with JTL were selected from more than 1,217 recently completed learners. The Regional Winners will now go head to head at One Moorgate Place in London on Thursday 6th June to compete for the title of ‘JTL Apprentice of the Year’.
One award will be presented to the top electrical/engineering maintenance apprentice and one to the best MES (plumbing or heating & venting) apprentice of the year. The final award – ‘JTL National Apprentice of the Year’ – will be presented to the overall winner, selected from all twelve Regional Winners.
