After 6 months of waiting we finally have an answer! Joe has won KEiBA 2015 Apprenticeship Of The Year Award.
It has been a long journey from the initial entry to the finals award ceremony. Joe was announced as the winner and provided a very heartfelt speech to over 600 people.
Paula Wilkinson, Marketing Director of Absols has said what this means to the business.
“With our first year appointing an apprentice, we didn’t know what to expect. Both KCC and Mid-Kent College helped us through the process, and we have been fortunate to have recruited Joe.
Winning KEiBA, meant that the judges reviewed all our business strategies and successes. They looked at our training plans, and development plans for Joe and have been impressed with our commitment to the apprenticeship scheme.
We would like to build on this success, and as we consistently grow as a company, we will continue to be involved with future apprenticeship schemes.”
Joe was Absols’ first apprentice and has been successful in his first year, Joe is currently working towards two L3 City & Guild Diploma’s with various Microsoft Certificates ultimately going on towards the MCSE accreditations
Joes delight in winning the award shone through, when asked, he replied. “Winning the award has been an emotional experience, I was so ecstatic when the judge called my name and have been receiving a vast amount of congratulations which I am very grateful for. The transformation in myself from the beginning of my apprenticeship to now is easily recognisable to those who know me and I am eternally thankful to Ian & Paula for giving me the opportunity here at such a brilliant company. Thank you to my colleagues who have helped me expand my knowledge and skill set and thanks to my wonderful family for their amazing support and belief in me.”
We are very proud of Joe and his Achievements.
Well Done Joe!
