Glasgow Modern Apprentice Awards
“To be awarded the Trades House of Glasgow Modern Apprentice of the Year was a huge honour. It has allowed me to progress into the final year of my apprenticeship with a strong attitude and mind-set, and the recognition has been invaluable within the company, creating opportunities to grow my knowledge and network. I would strongly encourage anyone in a modern apprenticeship to apply for this award no matter what stage you are at.”
