Congratulations to Adam Fisk and Lewis Aprea, winners at the recent University of Oxford Apprenticeship Awards, which took place at the prestigious Sheldonian Theatre.
Lewis Aprea, who is a Buildings Maintenance Apprentice in the Estates Department, won the 2nd Year Apprentice Award and was clearly surprised when his name was announced!! His nomination included the following testimony: “to an outsider it would not be possible to tell now that Lewis is not one of the qualified building tradesman team. His attitude to work and customer service is exemplary and he has developed skills significantly faster than we expected. Lewis has set the bar high for those who follow in his footsteps.” Wow!
Adam Fisk, who is a Museum Maintenance Apprentice at the Museum of Natural History, won the 3rd/Final Year Apprentice Award. His nomination is brilliant: “Adam is very professional and enthusiastic in all aspects of his work and has had a positive impact on the team. Adam is unfailingly polite, informative and helpful, whilst having excellent judgement, level-headedness and attention to detail. Adam has exceeded all expectations and is without doubt an invaluable asset to the Museum. His natural practical ability and confidence have equipped him well for the unpredictable and often extraordinary nature of the work, for example ‘Adam, can you build a scaffold tower and assist the artist in the construction of an 8 meter giant paper chicken please?’”
We are immensely proud of both Apprentices who are great ambassadors for their trades, for their employers and also for their very proud training provider. Well done guys!
