ECA Power Players 2017 finalists are former JTL apprentices

29 September 2017     JTL

JTL is celebrating that three of the four finalists in the recently announced ‘Power Players’ initiative had served their apprenticeships with them.

‘Power Players’ was run by the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) between April and July this year in collaboration with a wide range of industry partners and supporters including JTL. The initiative aimed to identify some of the leading young people across the engineering and electrotechnical services industry.

The two winners of the new initiative were Joseph Wu of T Clarke and Charlie Harwood of CEF, with the two other finalists Harry Bartle of Chris Bowker Ltd and George Antino of T Clarke making it to the final four. The videos from all four can still be seen at

“We were delighted to see that three of the four finalists were ex-JTL apprentices,” said JTL Head of Marketing Cathie Foster. “This level of success in a key initiative such as this, highlights that our learners progress onto a range of careers and are excellently placed for future success. We see a succession of extremely bright and able young men and women making their way through their apprenticeships, gaining their qualifications and heading on into worthwhile careers, many even starting their own businesses and achieving significant success. It’s extremely heart-warming to see our graduates qualifying for awards across England and Wales and making the running in high profile initiatives such as ‘Power Players’. With pretty much one in every two apprentices qualifying through their apprenticeships working with JTL, it’s not surprising we are seeing so many high quality young people making it in the profession, but it’s still extremely rewarding to hear of more winning and making it to the final stages of national awards such as these.”
