The Performance Through People (PTP) Awards took place at the Village Hotel in Walsall where around 90 guests listened to success stories from apprentices and employers. Awards were also presented to PTP’s longest serving employees who had been with the Midlands based Training Provider for up to 20 years – totalling up to 145 years of experience.
Cannock based company ATP Industries Group Ltd had two winners – Tom Hill won the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year while Kristian Povey took the Rising Star Award. Adrian Aston, Technical Director of ATP, said “I know that choosing a winner from so many nominees is very difficult but to be honest they are all winners in their own rights. I know from past experience that trying to study and maintain a normal work/ life balance can be very difficult especially when you have a young family. We are all so proud of what Kris and Tom have achieved and can really see how they have developed, and how the changes have had a positive effect on their day to day involvement at all levels within our organisation.”
One of PTP’s previous apprentices, Frankie Moore, introduced the awards along with operations director, Carolyn Stokes, and business development director, Gill Durkin. During the night guests were entertained by a guitarist and close-up magician while board members John Punch, Kevin Davis and Jane Preece presented the different awards.
Rob Colbourne, managing director of PTP, said “With the apprenticeship brand going from strength to strength in terms of credibility and another viable option to full time education; organisations holding apprenticeship award events can only enhance the brand by highlighting the positive impact apprenticeships can have on employers and individuals. Congratulations to all finalists and of course the winners at the PTP apprenticeship awards.”
