Xtrac Apprentices Win Awards!
Friday 21st October 2005
The Berkshire Apprenticeship Awards 2005 were hosted by the Berkshire Learning and Skills on Thursday 14th April 2005 at the Reading Town Hall. These prestigious awards are to celebrate training achievement and outstanding success by both young people and employers.
Employers are recognised for their commitment to developing young people through Apprenticeships and young learners are recognised in two categories. Firstly the Apprentice Award which celebrates young learners contribution to their workplace, where it has exceeded expectations and resulted in measurable benefits to their organisation. Secondly, the Personal Achiever Award is for young learners who have successfully overcome any barriers, difficulties or obstacles - personally and/or in the workplace to achieve and exceed all expectations.
We are delighted to announce that Xtrac received a special commendation in second place for Apprenticeship training achievement in the category of Employer of the Year 2005 Medium Organisation (50-249 employees) which was accepted on behalf of Xtrac by Jane Gilham, Human Resources Manager.
James O'Hagan, second year Apprentice Turner, received a special commendation for second place in the Personal Achiever Award (16-18 year olds).
Matt Clark, final year Apprentice Gearcutter was a runner up in the Advanced Apprentice Award.
