News: Apprentice winner in Rotherham


The Star reports on Teri-Leigh Gillespie, an advanced apprentice in metallurgy at Rotherham based Corus Engineering Steel who won the 2008 Apprentice of the Year Career Development award at Metskill's annual apprentice awards in Sheffield. Teri-Leigh helped Corus Engineering Steel save money by investigating improvements to grinding methods for top grade steel. Last year she won a travel award to attend a specialist conference and visit a steelworks in Germany, which enabled her to bring back new ideas and ways of working to her company. CES training adviser, Tony Goddard, told The Star: "Teri has shown initiative, drive and ambition. She has represented the company on numerous occasions as an ambassador at school events and at customer premises. Feedback on her performance has always been positive and full of praise." Nobby Stiles MBE, member of England’s winning 1966 World Cup football squad, presented Teri with a clock and £1,200 of computer vouchers. She also won an expenses-paid trip to London in December to attend the Wire Workers annual dinner.
