Two trades operatives in our Repairs and Maintenance Team are celebrating after being named as finalists in the South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Awards 2023.
Apprentice Plasterer Gemma Davies was a finalist in the Construction Apprentice of the Year category, and was also presented with a ‘highly commended’ award in recognition of the drive, ambition and willingness to learn that she has shown in her role.
Plasterer Matthew Bywater was a finalist in the Mentor of the Year category for the work that he does to help develop the next generation of trades staff at St Leger Homes. Matthew started out as an apprentice himself back in 2003, so it is fitting that as he enters his 20th year of service he is giving back to new apprentices by mentoring them and sharing the wealth of knowledge and experience he has built up.
Gemma and Matthew received their honours at an awards event held at Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham.
