At Gas Safe, we strongly believe in the importance of training up the next generation of plumbing and heating engineers, that’s why we commit to taking on apprentices; supporting them with learning and development through their training and offering them a job once qualified.
We were delighted when one of our apprentices, Max Tucker was nominated for the On Site Bristol apprentice of the year award, an annual event recognising apprentices in Bristol working as tradesmen.
Find out more about the evening, the award and On Site Bristol in our blog post.
The annual Bristol Apprentice Awards are hosted by On Site Bristol are designed to recognise the importance of construction apprentices and their employers to Bristol.
Attended by companies across Bristol and the South West, the awards held at Ashton Court Mansion are split into 17 different categories to represent different years of apprenticeship and different trades including electrical, plumbing and brickwork.
In attendance of the event was Councillor Anna Keen, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, Deputy Lord Mayor of Bristol Cleo Lake and Richard Harris, Vice Principal of Finance and Professional Services at the City of Bristol College.
Recognition of Achievement for Max
On the 13th November 2019, Max was joined at the evening awards ceremony by his friends, family and Adam Stafford, joint Managing Director of Gas Safe. The evening was very successful and it was encouraging to see so many committed apprentices and employers being recognised for their hard work.
Whilst he just missed out on apprentice of the year, Max was given a recognition of achievement for being nominated for the prestigious award. Additionally, Gas Safe were given recognition for taking on apprentices through On Site Bristol.
“It’s been great to have an apprentice like Max onboard at Gas Safe and this award is certainly deserved recognition for his hard work so far.”
“All of the team have been impressed with his attitude and we know he will make a great engineer once he finishes training.”
