Highly Commended - Joshua Perry, Stewart Clague Services Ltd

Employers Comments:
​​I have known Joshua since he became a first year student apprentice at SCT at the age of 16. At this age apprentice engineers tend to be immature and short on general skills and life experience. It’s fair to say that Josh was outside of this generalisation. He appears to have worked incredibly hard to gain the respect of his fellow colleagues, including his lie Manager and mentor. He is of smart appearance, keen to learn and asks challenging questions. He will do well in this industry.

ACR Trainee of the Year Awards 2017 is held at the Belfry on Thursday, 7th December.

"When asked why Sauermann UK supports the ACR Trainee of the Year Awards, an industry non-profit making event…well it’s simple. In an industry that is less trendy and not so appealing to young people, like others in the computer world or IT industry, trainees should be encouraged.  
This awards acknowledges the best trainees each year. The awards must be supported so it can continue year after year. A great industry networking event that gives you the opportunities to catch up with colleagues."
Ernest Bate, Managing Director, Sauermann UK
