An apprentice with Birmingham-based mechanical and electrical services specialist J S Wright has clinched a top regional training award.

Shaun Donaldson, who works out of the Aston headquarters of the 130-year-old company, was named Mechanical Engineering Services Apprentice of the Year for the Midlands by JTL, a leading training provider for the building services industry, on the completion of his training. 

One of more than 1,500 apprentices in their final year of training with JTL, Shaun received a trophy and a cheque for £100 at the Jurys Inn Hotel in Hinckley - and is now in the running for the title of JTL Apprentice of the Year at the national awards to be held in London in October.
Having completed his NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing and Heating with the provider, Shaun is currently working in J S Wright’s prefabrication department, producing fully loaded heat interface unit backboards and other modular units for multi-million-pound apartment schemes.
