As Part of National Apprenticeship Week 2017, local Apprentices along with their employers, friends and families attended the PETA Apprentice of the Year Awards.

The awards were held at the PETA Conference Centre in North Harbour in a ceremony presided over by The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor David Fuller.

Nominees are chosen by their trainers and assessors at PETA who offer Apprenticeships across the Engineering, Business and ICT sectors.

Congratulations to Charlotte Model-Webbe, Apprentice of the Year 2017, chosen from over 400 Apprentices.

Charlotte works as an IT Apprentice at TrackBack in Southampton and trained at PETA’s IT Training Centre in North Harbour, Portsmouth. PETA Apprenticeships Manager Gavin Smith announced the winner as The Lord Mayor presented the award.

TrackBack was founded in 2005 on the premise that every lead is important and that responding to each lead quickly and professionally is important. They have offices in London, Southampton and Singapore. They praised Charlotte, saying:

“Despite having no prior ICT experience we have been impressed with Charlotte’s ability to work independently resolving support tickets, whilst learning our portfolio of applications and becoming proficient in technical languages like MySQL.  Charlotte is an invaluable member of the team who can be relied on to carry out her daily support tasks and assist in our operations projects.  Charlotte’s development and achievements so far have inspired others at TrackBack to learn and further their own skills.”

PETA Training and Consultancy Services are based in North Harbour, Portsmouth’s business hub, and run the annual Apprentice of the Year Awards to celebrate the achievements of young people who have shown exceptional determination and achievement over the year. PETA, a not-for-profit-organisation aims to make sure that the young peoples’ hard work and determination to be the next business leaders is celebrated.

Best in Class for Business Apprenticeships was awarded to Gemma Loader of Material Things

“Employing Gemma as an Apprentice here at Material Things has had a huge positive effect on the day to day efficiency of our showroom.   Her mind set to do her very best in every task given to her, is consistent throughout her duties, from administration, negotiating discounts with suppliers to attending to customers.“

Best in Class for Engineering Apprenticeships was awarded to Dominic Philo of SMR Automotive Mirrors UK Ltd

“Dominic has a very good attitude towards his work and it was easy to see his passion for engineering, taking it upon himself to learn and master as many new skills as he can, both within and outside of the Tool Room.  If Dominic carries on in the way he has started he will make an excellent team member having already earned the respect of his supervisor and all his work colleagues.”
