AWS Apprentices Receive Fantastic Results

Newcastle-under-Lyme, UK – November 2019: AWS Electronics Group, one of Europe’s leading Specialist Electronics Manufacturing Services Providers, is happy to announce that two of our apprentices, Holly Platt and Connor Ecclestone, have recently been rewarded with some excellent results.

Holly was awarded a Distinction in her BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Technical Knowledge). In the 11 units she undertook, Holly received a fantastic 9 Distinctions, 1 Merit and 1 Pass.

Her results signal the end of Holly’s third year of her 4-year course, which she is currently undertaking at Newcastle-under-Lyme College.

Connor achieved 9 Distinctions, 1 Merit and 1 Pass in his 11 units and has gone on to pass his BTEC Level 3 diploma in Engineering with Distinction*Distinction.


His results come at the end of his 4-year apprenticeship, which he began in October 2016. 

Five years ago, AWS initiated an apprenticeship scheme to bring through local young engineering and technical employees into its business. The company has recruited four apprentices a year since and says it has proven a very successful initiative. It will continue to invest in this area going forward.

Jamie Maughan, Group Operations Director, said: "Apprentices are a vital part of our growth. We take on new apprentices every year and they continue to amaze us! By splitting their time between college and the workplace, they are learning the practical side of the industry as well as the theory."
