Three apprentices from BAE Systems in Lancashire have taken home accolades at the BAE Systems UK Apprenticeship Awards for 2018.

Daniel Hogg was named technical operations apprentice of the year and Hannah Booth (pictured) scooped the business administration and support apprentice of the year Award. Shannon O’Callaghan, business apprentice was presented with an outstanding achievement award. All three are based in Warton and Samlesbury.

Daniel impressed the judges with his strong potential for leadership and had previously been named North West Aerospace Alliance Apprentice of the Year 2017. Hannah displayed maturity beyond her years according to the judges and was a role model to peers.

Presenting the outstanding achievement awards, the judges said Shannon was an inspiration after sharing the highs and lows of her apprenticeship journey in a blog.

Steve Fogg, of shared services, said: "Our awards celebrate individual achievement; inspiring stories of community and charitable endeavour and the remarkable contribution our apprentices make to our success. We’re very proud of the investment we make in apprentices and early careers but it is the efforts, achievements and successes made by individuals that make that investment worthwhile for our business.

“Congratulations go to all our winners. It’s fitting that in this, the Government’s Year of Engineering, we are able to celebrate so many great stories of engineering and engineering support. I look forward to seeing how all our nominees progress in their careers.”
