Beakbane’s Matt Barnett has won the Engineering Apprentice of the Year Award at Worcester Group Training Association’s Annual Apprentice Awards Evening held at Worcester Warriors Rugby Club.

Matt was one of Beakbane’s first advanced level apprentices. He joined the company in 2008 and is now entering the final six months of an HNC in Engineering (Manufacturing) at Worcester College of Technology. He moved to the HNC course after receiving good City and Guilds grades.

This annual event brings together trainees, parents, company representatives and local dignitaries to acknowledge success in vocational training through Apprenticeship programmes which are designed to prepare young people for key jobs in local business.

Beakbane’s Managing Director Mike Southwell said: “We are very proud of Matt’s achievement and are great believers in the need to train the talent of the future. We have taken on two more apprentices this year and will take on two more next year. The success of our existing apprentices confirms the value of our commitment to continue the programme.”
