Beeston Manor Hotel Hoghton, near Preston, will host a major ceremony on Tuesday celebrating the best apprentices in the region’s building services engineering sector.

One will leave with the title JTL North West Apprentice of the Year 2014 to add to their already lengthy list of achievements.

The six finalists are Luke Howard and Stephen Ormerod from Preston; Stefan Peilober from Sale; Jordan Moran from Fleetwood; Harry Moscrop from Carlisle; and Adam Seddon from Wigan. All are apprentice electricians, with the exception of Luke and Adam who are plumbers.

Each of the finalists – all in the final stages of their four year JTL apprenticeship – were put forward for the hard-fought title by JTL’s Regional Training Officers, thanks to exceptional classroom work, outstanding practical abilities and excellent feedback from their employers.

Both on-the-job and academic skills were monitored and tested in a series of assessments. The potential candidates also attended formal interviews with members of the JTL senior management team before a final shortlist was selected.

Whoever claims first place at the North West of England event will be put forward for the title of ‘JTL National Apprentice of the Year’.
