The AMRC Training Centre has given a Special Recognition Award to Chesterfield Special Cylinders’ (CSC) sales engineer Jake Martin at its annual award ceremony at the University of Sheffield’s Firth Court Hall.
Jake received the award for his exemplary achievements, attitude and contributions to the training centre throughout the year. He had been an apprentice at the University of Sheffield’s AMRC Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) for three years during which he has completed his BTEC Level 3, NVQ Level 2 & 3 and qualified from his advanced apprenticeship in 2016. He is due to graduate from his higher degree in summer of this year.
The awards are generously supported by Boeing.
Director of the AMRC Training Centre, Nikki Jones, said: “The awards are a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements of our apprentices. They really are a credit to themselves and their companies.”
Professor Sir Keith Burnett, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, said: “I am extremely proud of the ability of the AMRC Training Centre and of the work it does training future generations of much needed engineers, so it is only right to mark the achievements of our talented apprentices and of those who train and mentor them.
Jake Martin said: “The AMRC remains central to my career in engineering and has a global reputation for training to the highest standards, so it is an honour to be recognised in this way.”
Lee Lawrence, sales director at CSC, said: “Jake has quickly become an integral member of our sales team and much of his ability and acumen derives from the knowledge he has acquired at the AMRC. He deserves this award and we are very proud of him.”
