Mark Venn awarding "Best Engineering Apprentice" to winner Jamie Lucas
In celebration of their latest graduations, South Devon College recently hosted their annual Graduation and Awards Ceremony at the Imperial Hotel, Torquay where they honoured over 200 apprentices in front of their employers, colleagues & family members.
Derek Lane & Co played their part in the ceremony by awarding this years "Best Engineering Apprentice" to 2014 winner Jamie Lucas.
Apprenticeships have grown increasingly popular in recent years and Derek Lane & Co have much been an advocate of it:
Through our partnership with South Devon College, 3 of our engineers have come to us as apprentices;
Jamie Rowland & Dan Fox are both still doing their apprenticeships, whilst Will Broome has completed his apprenticeship and has become Derek Lane & Co's Engineering Team Leader (on a side note Will was awarded the Best Engineering Apprentice 2 years running during his apprenticeship!) .
Just as apprentices are a vital makeup of Derek Lane & Co's business strategy & engineering expansion, they also have a positive impact on the local economy.
Thanks to South Devon College for inviting us to the ceremony.
