J S Wright apprentice wins training award

An apprentice design engineer with mechanical and electrical services specialist J S Wright has won a major award for his outstanding commitment to training.

Danny Buckley, who works at the J S Wright Birmingham headquarters, was presented with the Higher Education Construction Award at the annual South and City College’s Sir Doug Ellis Apprenticeship Awards, held at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel.

The 22-year old from Solihull received his trophy in front of 200 guests from the local business community at the glittering ceremony, which celebrated the key role of apprenticeships in the UK’s skills and employment strategies. 

Danny completed his BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Building Services Engineering through South & City College and is now in the first year of his Level 4 HNC course in Building Services Engineering at the Birmingham college.

As well as being supported by his college tutor, Mark Price, Danny has been a member of the J S Wright Academy since joining the company three years ago. He is also being mentored by design engineer Tom Hollywood on J S Wright’s industry leading Experience programme, which helps the company’s technical apprentices fast-track their way up the career ladder.

Mark Price said: “Danny’s attendance, motivation and work ethic in pursuit of his academic qualifications have been outstanding. Credit must also go to J S Wright for the excellent structure and support of its apprenticeship scheme that enables its young people to pursue their apprenticeships to the best of their ability.”  

Phil Leech, the new managing director of J S Wright, said: “Danny thoroughly deserves his award. He is one of an outstanding team of apprentices at our Birmingham and London offices that we are training to the highest standards to support our continuous expansion as a £50million business.” 

The J S Wright Experience programme, which was launched last year, matches the company’s mechanical and electrical apprentices with mentors who support them in understanding and experiencing J S Wright’s values, processes and procedures, and help them develop their leadership and communication skills.
