The 2015 Apprentice of the Year in the National Construction College Awards is Crowland Cranes’ Steven Garrod.

Steven (19), who joined the company as a school leaver at 16, was also awarded a first for his contribution to his advanced studies in Crane and Plant Mechanics.

A spokesman at Crowland Cranes said: “This was a very impressive achievement by Steven as these awards are presented in recognition of those in the construction industry who go above and beyond, showing both high levels of work ethic and personal skills.

“Crowland Cranes was proud to be part of the NCC East Apprentice Awards 2015 celebrations.”

Steven, a Year 3 apprentice at Crowland Cranes, attended the awards at CITB Bircham Newton.

The National Construction College continues to be the largest training provider of its kind in Europe – supporting over 26,000 individuals every year, including over 700 apprentices.

It enjoys achievement rates well above the national average.

The spokesman said Steven has progressed successfully within the company since joining.

The continuation of these awards is the CITB Pride of Construction award, which will be held at the National History Museum in London in November.

Steven is one of only four apprentices representing different areas of the country eligible to be presented with this final award.

Crowland Cranes’ annual intake for a three-year modern apprenticeship to like-minded school leavers is still open to applicants for autumn 2015.
