Wienerberger, provider of wall, roof and landscaping innovations are celebrating their apprentice being named a double award winner at the annual Apprenticeship Awards.
Winner Mitchell Bates is an advanced apprentice at the company’s Hartlebury site, and was named First Year BTEC Electrical Engineering Student of the Year, and also won the Most Improved Apprentice of the Year award.
Bates is now in the second year of a four year scheme, and now plans to advance to higher education and commence a Higher National Certificate in the coming academic year.
Maintenance manager at Wienerberger’s Waresley Plant, Melvyn Hudson said: “We’re thrilled to see Mitchell named both Electrical Engineering Student of the Year and Most Improved Apprentice, as both awards and thoroughly deserved. We’ve always been very impressed with the way that Mitchell has conducted himself, ever since we first met him in Spring of 2014 when he made his initial apprenticeship enquiry.
“He’s always bristled with enthusiasm and confidence, which is very refreshing to see, and also has a great work ethic – Mitchell had to work very hard to get to the level he is currently at, and even completed extra modules in the first year of his programme in order to complete it. We look forward to watching Mitchell progress in his career and receive recognition for his achievements.”
