JTL electrical training officer, Anthony Lett, said: “Nathan has shown strong determination and commitment towards his apprenticeship, always submitting work on time and to a very high standard. He has shown a strong will power to succeed in all aspects and areas of his apprenticeship.

“Nathan takes pride in his work and has always had an excellent relationship with the clients, as well as being polite and professional when dealing with them. He achieved good results in his college work and exams and completed his AM2 exam first time.

"Nathan has been an admirable and hardworking apprentice and I’m sure he’ll take this same attitude into the next stage of his career.”

Nathan currently holds a NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment (Buildings, Structures and the Environment) and AM2 Electrotechnical Occupational Competence.

He said: "Since enrolling with JTL, I have always striven to fulfil my potential, so to have this recognised is a great achievement. It has given me a job which I genuinely enjoy and can see myself progressing in.

"I hope this will encourage young people who are considering apprenticeships that you don’t always need to go to university to achieve a good career.’’
