Last year Xtrac introduced the Darren Huttel Apprentice of the Year Award in recognition of the efforts put in by the Apprentices. The assessment is based on their conduct and performance both at work and college, NVQ portfolios and overall performance and conduct.
The awards were handed out at the Donnington Valley Hotel on 15th December.3rd place this year went to Ben Clark, 2nd place to James O’Hagan (who was last year’s winner) and in first place, Mark Rosier. Mark joined Xtrac in September 2006. He has impressed everyone he has come into contact with during his first 15 months with Xtrac, and in particular has distinguished himself due to his enthusiasm, maturity and confidence. Always happy, polite and inquisitive, he has shown interest in all the tasks he has been presented and uses his initiative to suggest good ides and looks beyond the immediate task.
The standard of this year’s award is very high, so will be a hard one to beat in 2008.
