This year Yeovil College held their annual apprentice awards evening at Haynes Motor Museum, Sparkford. The evening was attended by 120 nominees and guests who were able to tour some of the exhibitions, including the “Red Room” of beautiful red sports cars from around the world, such as a 1965 AC Cobra, the iconic 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400s, and a host of Alfa Romeos, Maseratis & Ferraris.
Wessex employee, Chris Conway, won the award for best electrical apprentice and Matt Squibb won the best Fire & Security Apprentice at level two. Fire & Security Apprentice, Jack Kendall collected the “Representative Award” on behalf of a Yeovil College team, including Richard Atherton, following their excellent 3rd place finish at this year’s national security apprentice skills challenge held at the NEC Birmingham.
Simon Morgan, Director, and Rachel Revell, HR Manger, were delighted to attend the ceremony and support all our winners. Said Simon; “Wessex is very proud of our apprenticeship scheme and we warmly congratulate this year’s crop of winners. Whilst the government is eventually waking up to the importance of apprenticeships, we have recruited 66 apprentices in the last 10 years alone”.
