A Maghull apprentice has been highly commended in Bellway’s annual Apprentice of the Year awards.
Tom Rafter has been recognised for his exemplary attitude, commitment and high standard of daily work.
The 18-year-old apprentice electrician is based at the company’s North West regional office in Hunts Cross but works across a number of residential developments in the Merseyside and Lancashire regions.
To be highly commended is a real achievement and a fantastic accolade for Tom, who is currently in the second year of a four year Engineering and Manufacturing Technology Electrical Installations course at Hugh Baird College in Liverpool.
To further increase his knowledge of the construction process, Tom’s apprenticeship involves undertaking practical work alongside Bellway’s existing electrical team on site four days a week. This is combined with spending one day a week at college, although just recently his studies have taken place online due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
He is very much enjoying the challenges of an apprenticeship in the construction industry and is delighted to have been recognised in this year’s awards. He said: “It was such a surprise to be told that I had been highly commended.”
