Our Apprentice of the Month Award is an opportunity for the spotlight to shine on one of our current apprentices who has worked hard, accomplished, applied themselves or has achieved something fantastic whilst on programme. This is an opportunity to celebrate apprenticeships and their value, not only for the learner but also for the employer and the business they work within.
In order to be awarded Apprentice of the Month, learners can be nominated by their TDM coach, other TDM members of staff who have come into contact with the apprentice and also from their mentor, employer or colleagues they work along side.
Apprentice of the Month – December
Our Apprentice of the Month Award for December goes to Peter Miller from Borwell. Peter is currently on his Level 4 Software Development Apprenticeship.
Peter’s nomination came from his Apprenticeship coach, who wanted to recognise his personal and professional development progression, and how much knowledge he has built up so far on his apprenticeship.
“Peter works at Borwell and is completing his Level 4 Software Development Apprenticeship under the fantastic mentor Robert Bilsland.
Robert & I have noticed massive progression in terms of Peter’s personal and professional development skills on the job.
Part of this is down to that fact that Peter has built up fantastic knowledge in the field of software development and this knowledge has given him the confidence he needed to give voice to his ideas and opinions for the ongoing projects at Borwell.Peter has stepped up in team meetings, collaborated brilliantly with colleagues and superiors and now consistently brings forward suggestions to enhance the efficiency of live projects within the team.On the apprenticeship Peter has recently dedicated himself to his E-Portfolio write up and the evidence he is presenting directly reflects the positive progression within his role and the maturity gained under the experience on the job, mentorship under Bob and also his coaching with his skills coach, Nathan.Peter has successfully harnessed the resources around him to boost his confidence and develop as a young professional in his field.He is coming to the end of his apprenticeship now and we are all excited to see where his achieved national standard will take him within Borwell.”
