Precision Pneumatics is proud to announce that our Service Administrator, Beth Wood, has been shortlisted for Apprentice of the Year in the 2018 Knowsley Business Awards.
Beth has emerged from a highly competitive nomination process to place herself in the running for this prestigious award. The winner will be announced on 22nd November at the annual awards ceremony, which will take place in the Grand Marquee at Knowsley Safari Park.
Beth is currently working towards an NVQ in Business Administration as part of the hugely successful Knowsley Apprentice scheme which helps local young people to develop their skills within the workplace.
Beth is delighted to be on the shortlist and commented: “I have really benefitted from my apprenticeship at Precision Pneumatics. I learn best when I can apply my knowledge to something, so to be able to develop my skills and put them into practice immediately has really helped me.
“I have developed my communication and listening skills and am more comfortable with IT than I was at school. My friends and family have noticed that I am more confident and I think that’s because I’m part of a friendly and supportive team who encourage me.”
In confirming the nomination, Irene Johnson from the Knowsley Growth Hub observed that “I personally feel that the Apprentice and Employee categories are where the business shines. We are so lucky to have such a dynamic and diverse business community all contributing to the Knowsley growth and success story. I can’t thank everyone at Precision Pneumatics enough for the part you play in that.”
The whole team is delighted that Beth’s work ethic and willingness to learn has been recognised; we look forward to celebrating Beth’s achievement with her at the Italian Masquerade themed awards ceremony. We also congratulate all of the shortlisted businesses in the 13 award categories.
