Following our recent win at the Apprenticeships4England Awards, we are delighted to announce another success, this time at the Swindon Apprenticeship Awards, which saw our Infrastructure apprentice, Callum Daw, win Intermediate Apprentice of the Year.
The awards, held on 16th March at Swindon Town Football Club, were the first of its kind run by Swindon Borough Council and celebrated the achievements of apprentices and recognised the employers committed to supporting talent and nurturing young people into skilled employees.
Callum Daw, who joined our Apprenticeship programme in 2014, was nominated in the Intermediate category and competed against a number of other major shortlisted contenders to win the award.
Callum (pictured*) comments:
“On leaving college I debated whether to attend University or start work. By chance, I found this apprenticeship and took it, which turned out to be the best decision I could have made. To anybody looking to do an apprenticeship, I would highly recommend it as it’s a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills in a professional environment.
The evening itself was a great success – everybody had a fantastic night (including my parents who were very proud) – and I am incredibly thankful to Capita for nominating me as it is a great achievement for both myself and the company.”
Daniel Busson, Head of Managed Services and Apprenticeships, adds:
“We are absolutely delighted that Callum was awarded ‘Intermediate Apprentice of the Year’ during the recent Swindon Apprenticeship Awards.
Callum has been involved in numerous high profile projects during his time with us and even identified problems with our order and shipment processes, taking it upon himself to design and develop new software, which is now used within the business, resulting in faster turnaround order times and increased customer satisfaction.
He continues to set an excellent example to all our other apprentices and is actively involved in helping us promote apprenticeships across the local area.”
