Two individuals from Newtown and a local business have been named as finalists in the new Cambrian Training Company Apprenticeship, Employment and Skills Awards 2017.

The awards, which will be presented in a ceremony at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells on 8 March to coincide with National Apprenticeship Week, are designed to celebrate all that is great about training, apprenticeships and skills in Wales.

Cambrian Training Company, one of Wales’ leading training providers, has launched the awards to reward individuals and employers who have excelled in vocational learning and training programmes delivered by the company, which has offices in Welshpool, Holyhead, Colwyn Bay and Llanelli.

Rhiannon Wilson, accounts assistant at Links Electrical Supplies, Newtown, has been named as a finalist in the Foundation Apprentice of the Year section, while Danny Foulkes, trainee project manager at EvaBuild in Newtown, has been named as a finalist in the Apprentice of the Year.

EvaBuild has also been named as one of the finalists in the Micro Employer of the Year.

“Cambrian Training Company works with some great employers and learners throughout Wales as we deliver a range of apprenticeship, skills and employment training programmes on behalf of the Welsh Government,” said Cambrian Training Company’s managing director Arwyn Watkins.

“These awards celebrate the achievements of those who have exceeded expectations during their engagement and commitment to training and skills programmes and shown a unique approach to training and development and demonstrated initiative, enterprise, innovation and creativity.

“We are delighted with the quality of the applications we have received from across Wales and look forward to showcasing the success stories of our learners and employers.”

The Apprenticeship Programme is funded by the Welsh Government with support from the European Social Fund.
