One of the UK’s leading training providers for young people in England and Wales, JTL, gathered together the best apprentices of 2015 and celebrated their successes at the organisation’s annual awards ceremony last month. Held at Drapers’ Hall in London, the finalists were all chosen from JTL’s current cohort of 6,000 learners. Curtis Clarke from South Yorkshire won the 2015 crown of MES Apprentice of the Year and Birmingham based Ryan Reeman was Full Time MES Student of the Year. “Today represents the culmination of a year of hard work across the country,” said JTL chief executive, Jon Graham. “As always, it was a difficult process to pick out one exceptional candidate from what is, without doubt, an outstanding group. We look after thousands of learners each year, so the competition is very tough. “Our awards highlight the importance of good quality apprenticeships and training, and they also recognise the brilliant young talent that exists in the building services engineering sector. “My conversations with some of the finalists have been nothing short of inspirational – these are a gifted group of young people and their successes are a reminder of the vital role that work-based learning programmes can play in the lives of young people. “With the future of the industry in hands of this calibre, I feel very optimistic. Both Curtis and Ryan were commended for being model students and we wish them every future success.” To qualify for the Apprentice of the Year titles, candidates were nominated by their JTL training officers thanks to their exceptional classroom work, outstanding practical abilities and excellent employer feedback. The potential winners attended formal interviews and practical assessments conducted by JTL’s senior management team both for the regional events and prior to the national final. enquiry number 120 Curtis Clarke with Ian and Jon enquiry number 309
