Brandon Gallagher-Kenningham named as regional award winner in JTL National Awards

Hull-based apprentice, Brandon Gallagher-Kenningham, has been named as a regional award winner in the JTL Regional Awards.

JTL, one of the leading apprenticeship providers in the building services engineering sector in England and Wales, runs the JTL Regional and National Awards on an annual basis to award learners who have demonstrated outstanding levels of achievement and commitment to learning throughout their apprenticeships.

Brandon was presented with a glass trophy and £100 in prize money at the offices of his employer Airco, by JTL Head of Learner Assessment (Northern Region), John Cramphorn.  Brandon was nominated for the award by his Training Officer, John Wilkinson, in recognition of his exceptional commitment and progress with his MES (Mechanical Engineering Services) apprenticeship.

Brandon now joins 11 other regional winners, who will all come together on 28th June in the hope of being named JTL National Apprentice of the Year at the National Awards, which take place in London.

JTL Training Officer, John Wilkinson, commented: “From day one Brandon has always shown a positive commitment to his qualification which has been reflected in the technical qualifications he’s achieved.

“Brandon has taken it on himself and has moved into further aspects of the industry and is now in the process of training up apprentices to follow on in his footsteps. Brandon’s final portfolio was the finest I’d ever seen in the nearly 16 years I’ve been working at JTL.”

A delighted Brandon added: “I was very proud to hear that I’d been chosen as a JTL Regional Award winner, and I’m incredibly excited to now move forwards as a finalist in the upcoming National Awards. This award reflects the hard work that I have put into my apprenticeship, and I’d like to express how grateful I am to John who nominated me”

The award scheme assesses each nominee against four key elements which make up the apprenticeship framework – their practical work onsite, theoretical knowledge, key skills, and industrial test scores.
