Four York College apprentices have won a collective award for ‘Most Informative Apprentice’ at Scarborough Science and Engineering Week (SSEW), for their contribution in bringing STEM to life.
Engineering apprentices Jake Ward, Taylor Moulds, Henri Sarmanauskas and Elliott Kettlestring were delighted to be presented with award at the Scarbough Science and Engineering Week 2019 dinner. The Award was particularly special as it was voted for by secondary school students who attended SSEW - an event aimed at empowering young people to take control of their future.
Jake, Taylor, and Henri are studying the Level 3 apprenticeship in Engineering Maintenance & Operations (Multiskill) and Elliott is a Level 3 Infrastructure Technician apprentice. They had a fabulous time at the Scarborough Science and Engineering Week event, which helped to promote careers in engineering and the local progression routes that improve recruitment in the sector.
Henri Sarmanauskas, Apprentice Multi Skilled Production Technician – “ I really enjoyed the event, it was really good to talk to the students and see their enthusiasm when I spoke to them about my job and apprenticeship – some of their questions were really tough!”
Shaun Zablocki, Production Manager at Third Energy UK Gas Ltd said: “We were delighted to support such an inspirational event as Scarborough Science and Engineering Week, for me, this event gets better year on year and really brings STEM to life for the students. It was great to watch our young engineers interacting with the students, and for them to be recognised with an award for this, really topped off what was an engaging and fulfilling event”
