After reviewing many excellent submissions, we are delighted to present the winners of the APSE Horticulture, and Transport and Vehicle Maintenance Apprentice Awards 2016!
These prestigious awards are presented to the most enthusiastic apprentices who show themselves to be innovative and focused on producing excellence in their service area. All of our winners and finalists have proven themselves to be an asset to the local authorities they work for.
Wayne Priestley, APSE Principal Advisor, said, ‘I am delighted to be involved in this year’s Apprentice Awards. The awards allow APSE to publicly acknowledge the commitment that these apprentices show towards their work, and they also highlight councils as excellent places for people to begin, and develop, their careers. Our apprentices offer an undeniably excellent contribution to local council frontline services.’
Commenting on the awards, APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said, ‘it is brilliant to see such dedicated people taking the first steps in their new careers through apprenticeships. The finalists and winners highlight how vital apprenticeship programmes are for the communities they serve, and how much local councils can gain from participating in them. These apprentices are shining examples of excellence in local government frontline services.’
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists!
