UCEM’s Director of Apprenticeships, John Pratt, commented: “We are immensely proud of our provision of apprenticeships at UCEM so it is great to see those apprentices who are studying, and who have studied, with us being recognised in this way.
“This is the third year in a row where a number of our apprentices have been nominated for Apprentice of the Year, and this is turning into an annual highlight for us. All the very best of luck to our apprentice nominees.”
Alan Hill, UCEM’s Dean of School (Academic), added: “I’m always delighted to see our students succeed, and this is very much the case for those who have completed their studies with us and go on to make an impact in the sector.
“We have so many alumni going on to great things in their career so it’s very satisfying to see three alumni nominated for these Awards. Graduating with UCEM gives you the tools to be a success in the Built Environment, and these nominations are proof of both the worth of our programmes and the calibre of students who seek to boost their careers in the sector.”
The Awards ceremony is being hosted online on Friday, 27 November, 2020. Head to the event website to find out more.
