INSPIRATIONAL apprentice Jason Moore has become a role model for other pupils of St Hugh’s Academy.
Jason’s hard work throughout a motor vehicle apprenticeship has not only led to fellow schoolmates looking up to him, but has also seen him land a spot in the final of a regional awards ceremony tonight (Friday).
He hopes to walk away with the title Young Apprentice of the Year.
Jason said: “Being part of the motor vehicle young apprenticeship programme has given me a fantastic opportunity. I am sure I will have a successful career in the motor industry.”
Jason has completed his two-year studies at Grantham Honda and the ITEC Training and Assessment Centre with great enthusiasm and success, said ITEC assessor Gary Beardon.
He added: “Jason is one of the top YA students I have ever taught; his dedication, knowledge and leadership skills are far more advanced than some of the adult candidates I teach.”
In choosing the finalists for the Young Apprentice of the Year category, judges looked for entrants who have made the most of their time on the programme, and who have demonstrated considerable progress personally and in their studies.
Sylvia Garton, achievement and exams officer at St Hugh’s, said: “Being part of the young apprenticeship program has made a real difference to Jason.
“His confidence has grown immensely since starting the scheme and he has become a real inspiration to other students.
“We are very proud of Jason’s achievements and he is not only a credit to himself but also to the school. Winning this award will mean a lot to him and would be the appropriate reward for all his hard work.”
Principal Louise Bennett added: “I am hugely proud of Jason; his hard work, dedication and positive approach have been recognised and this is fantastic.”
The Awards are hosted by the National Apprenticeship Service.
