For the second successive year a Hallam apprentice has been nominated by staff at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre for an award at the Apprentice of the Year ceremony held at the University of Sheffield in May each year. Tom Vause, a second year apprentice based in Hallam’s CNC machining section, was one of three nominees in the “Academic Achiever of the Year” category. Awards were presented by Harry Gration, the well known TV news personality.

Last year Hallam’s Adrian Salatowski won the award for his category, an achievement that Tom didn’t quite manage to emulate. Nevertheless in a cohort of over 150 engineering apprentices, making the last three reflects outstanding ability and effort. Well done Tom!
