High-performing apprentices from the College of West Anglia (CWA) were honoured for their ambitious drive and impressive talent at Lynn’s Town Hall.
The CWA has around 1,200 apprentices and works with approximately 600 businesses. In total 18 apprentices – a winner from each industry sector – received awards presented by Principal David Pomfret.
The evening was compered by Mark Reavell, executive director of partnerships at CWA, while a light buffet – provided by CWA catering students – was served to guests on arrival and during the interval.
Mr Pomfret said: “This ceremony has been a great way to kick-start the college’s celebration of National Apprenticeship Week.
“Congratulations to all of our winners. They represent just a small proportion of our cohort and are a credit to the college.
“To mark apprenticeship week, I have experienced the work of an apprentice first-hand, as I had a fantastic opportunity to go back to the floor as a horticulture apprentice at Middleton Hall Golf Club.”
John Clarke presented two awards – the Kevin Clarke Memorial Trophy for year one and year two – in memory of his son Kevin, a CWA electrical apprentice who sadly died in a car accident aged 19, in 1984.
