JTL, the national training provider for electrical, plumbing and heating apprenticeships, has named York-based Tommy Rice as the winner of its Mechanical Engineering Services (MES) award at this year’s National Apprentice of the Year awards, which took place at The Victory Services Club in London.
Tommy, who works for electrical, plumbing and heating contractors JDL in York, comments: “It was such a lovely ceremony, honestly, watching all the other happy finalists and JTL staff members, winning an award myself was just the perfect round-off. I’m delighted to accept the MES award and really excited to make use of my prize, I’ve started planning out what to do with it already!”
The JTL National Apprentice of the Year accolade went to Leicestershire-based Michelle Robinson, who works for Electract’s inspection and testing team since finishing her apprenticeship with them, while Lincolnshire-based Alex Jolley, who works for Dornan Engineering Services Limited, won the Paul McNaughton Electrical (formerly Electrical Apprentice) award.
As the recipient of JTL’s National Apprentice of the Year Award 2022, Michelle was presented with the winner’s silver cup, and £1000 cheque from JTL. Tommy, meanwhile, received a voucher from UK Plumbing Services Limited, while Edmundson Electrical donated a Megger multi-function tester for Alex. All three also received engraved glass trophies.
Paul McGuire, interim chief executive at JTL, said: “Our awards are a great opportunity to recognise the excellence of our top apprentices and it’s been a pleasure getting to learn about the experiences of Michelle, Tommy and Alex, as well as the other finalists as part of this process. Our apprentices and their experiences will always be at the heart of this company, and that is exactly what makes these award ceremonies so exciting.”
