The IRTE North-Eastern Centre is inviting businesses in the area to consider nominating young, apprentice engineers to be considered for the prestigious Apprentice of the Year 2018.

The award has shone a light on talented and successful apprentices from local operators and dealerships, recognising both academic achievement and practical application, and promoting skills in modern vehicle diagnostic, maintenance and repair.

North Eastern Centre Chairman Gary Chisholm is leading the Centre’s support for the next generation of engineers to ensure safe and reliable vehicles operate on our roads.

"The Centre believes strongly in giving businesses the opportunity to nominate and celebrate our future engineers hard work and success. We have had some great apprentices in recent years who have built a career in engineering, and many have moved on to advance their careers with promotion,” said Gary Engineering Director for Stagecoach North East.

Businesses who wish to participate in this year’s award - which will be presented in May 2018 at the Annual Dinner and Awards evening - should contact the Honorary Secretary, John Greaves, for more details and a nomination form for their applicant.
