Avonmouth EM+I Manager
Wessex Water

I started my career as an Apprentice with Wessex Water as a budding young engineer, It gives me great honour to give other aspiring apprentices the opportunity to be rewarded for their commitment and effort in their apprenticeships.

This type of training and learning is so rewarding for the individual and our business, harnessing great talent and giving them the ability to apply their passion within their discipline, it also allows our teams to pass on knowledge from generation to generation something only possible with the apprenticeship program.

Head of Apprenticeships

I’m delighted to have been asked to participate as a member of the judging panel and to celebrate the outstanding achievements of apprentices. The awards recognise their resilience and dedication, and also shine a spotlight on those employers, providers and individuals who champion apprenticeships.

Lead Hospitality Trainer / Assessor
Strode College

During my years within Hospitality I have always felt that getting feedback is valuable, this comes in many forms from work products, to competitions or awards, to a simple pat on the back. As an active Chef in Industry I have always got the best from my team with positive feedback, in the College as Lead Hospitality I am always getting more from my Apprentices with positive feedback, I have been a medal winner at the World Culinary Olympics so gaining that was fantastic (positive feedback).

Been involved as a Judge in the BristolLive & BathLive Apprenticeship Awards is providing feedback to deserving Apprentices so they can feel that same feeling for been recognised. Not just motivating the Apprentices but their Companies as well.
