Top apprentices in Yorkshire and North East compete for prestigious apprentice award

30 October 2014     JTL

The National Railway Museum in York will see the eight best electrical, heating and plumbing apprentices in the region come together on Tuesday 4th November to celebrate their successes. One will leave with the title ‘JTL Yorkshire and North East Apprentice of the Year 2014’ to add to their already lengthy list of achievements.

The eight candidates are Lee Renney from Whitley Bay (employed by John N Dunn Group), Kristopher Willis from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea (Nu-Heat Ltd), Jonathan Clarke from Huddersfield (Preston Electrical Ltd), Thomas Faver from Barnsley (Kier Sheffield LLP), Ashley Miller from Elsecar (Lilleker Bros Ltd), Matthew Lynch from Cleveland (Intelect UK Ltd), Charles Blacker from York (Rothwell Electrical  Services Ltd) and Martin McNiven from Leeds (Pennine Environmental Services Ltd). All are apprentice electricians, with the exception of Lee and Kristopher who are JTL plumbing apprentices.

Each of the finalists – all in the final stages of their four year JTL apprenticeship - were put forward for the hard-fought title by JTL’s Regional Training Officers, thanks to exceptional classroom work, outstanding practical abilities and excellent feedback from their employers. Both on-the-job and academic skills were monitored and tested in a series of assessments. The potential candidates also attended formal interviews with members of the JTL senior management team before a final shortlist was selected.

Whoever claims first place at the Yorkshire and North East event will be put forward for the title of ‘JTL National Apprentice of the Year’. The overall winner will be announced at an awards ceremony held at Drapers’ Hall in the City of London on 25 February 2015.
