News: Recognition for Rotherham engineering apprentices


Samantha King, an apprentice engineer at Newburgh Engineering, has won the Award of Excellence at the recent Annual Learner Awards held at Brinsworth Training in Rotherham recently.

The evening, delivered in conjunction with The Institution of Mechanical Engineers saw over 120 guests enjoy an evening of celebration and recognition for some of the region's finest young engineering talent.

The night saw the launch of the Award of Excellence, sponsored by ROCOL Lubricants. Other sponsors for the awards also included Firth Rixson, Oxley and Coward Solicitors and Rotherham United FC.

The award was presented by Paul King, technical manager at ROCOL who explained why Samantha from Maltby, Rotherham was a worthy winner: "The first apprentice to win the ROCOL Award for Excellence has proven to be enthusiastic with an exceptional understanding of engineering. She has shown a methodical approach, which is demonstrated through both her written and practical work pieces. She has maintained a consistent effort and enthusiasm throughout the course and has proven to be a positive example to new apprentices."

Paul Reeves, development director at Brinsworth Training Business said: "We are delighted to see such a showcase of young talent coming through the system, it is a great credit to the learners, our own training team and of course the employers that are supporting them through this critical part of their careers."

Another Newburgh Engineering trainee, Chloe Jones, has been named winner of the Rotherham Young Apprentice Programme.

Chloe, from Thorpe Hesley, is one of a number of apprentices who has since progressed onto the New ERA apprentice training programme, set up by Rotherham-based Newburgh Engineering, Brinsworth Training and Air Accessories.

The New ERA programme was set up in response to employers' concerns about a lack of the comprehensive, hi-tech training needed to give young people the skills their companies need and is designed to create a highly skilled breed of young engineers delivered over a duration of 42 weeks.
