Maycast-Nokes winner of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2017

Maycast-Nokes is a winner in the National Apprenticeship Awards 2017


Maycast-Nokes was one of the winners at the East of England regional final of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2017.

The Awards, now in their fourteenth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas: businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

On being announced as winner, David Blower, Sales Director said:

We are thrilled to have won the National Apprenticeship Award for Medium Employer of the Year (East of England). Aerospace foundry engineering is inherently complex and apprenticeships are vital to our long term success. They provide the perfect blend of theory and hands-on learning. Our students spend time working in our manufacturing departments, gaining an understanding of how castings are manufactured, machined, treated and inspected and it is very satisfying to see so many ex-apprentices now holding key engineering roles within the company. Special thanks should also go to our training partners Colchester Institute, Harlow College, Institute of Cast Metal Engineers and BITECH as well as the Braintree District Education & Skills Board who we are working with to help drive apprenticeship uptake in the area.

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service, said:

“The National Apprenticeship Awards allow talented apprentices and committed employers from across our regions to receive well-deserved recognition for their apprenticeship achievements. Winners recognised at these awards show the range of sectors and variety of job roles apprenticeships are available in, and how they can deliver the skills employers need. I congratulate all winners on their success so far and the very best of luck in the next stage of the competition.”
