Double awards win for Lorient star Apprentice

Lorient fully supports the Government’s STEM initiative to help create a strong supply of scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians to service the UK manufacturing industry in the future. As part of this – we have committed to supporting Apprenticeships. In 2011 we appointed two Apprentices; Liam Evans (ICT Practitioner) and Harrison Fewings (Mechanical Engineer).

Exeter College has just announced that Harrison Fewings has been awarded two top honours. He is the: Engineering Apprentice of the Year and Apprentice of the Year for Business Solutions 2013.

Working in Production Harrison successfully completed his BTEC Level 2 Extended Certificate in Engineering with a Distinction in May, going on to complete the Intermediate Level Apprenticeship in Engineering Manufacture, which incorporates both the BTEC Level 2 and a NVQ Level 2 in Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering. He is currently working towards his Level 3 at Exeter College. During his time he has integrated seamlessly into a number of important projects and has acquired many valuable skills.

Harrison’s achievements will be honoured at The Skills Award Ceremony at The Flybe Training Academy at Exeter Airport later this month. Alan Ward, Skills Officer at Exeter College, who nominated Harrison for both awards, said: “Harrison stood out from the rest of his cohort due to his attitude to not only his college academic work, but also during his NVQ observations, where he demonstrated ‘that extra keenness’ to complete work and targets set. He was also the first to complete his level 2 NVQ.”
