Back in February, The Engineering Trust held its prestigious annual awards that recognise and celebrate the best and brightest champions of engineering as a career – apprentices, mentors and employers. We’re extremely proud of Freddie Wilson-Lyons, our Technical Manager, who through his hard work and dedication has won the Trevor Woodger Award!
The Trevor Woodger Award for Career Progression is one of the most notable awards presented during the ceremony. The award recognises and celebrates an ex-apprentice who has made exceptional progress in their career.
Freddie is a prime example of how professionalism and hard work have led to a successful career in engineering. Since finishing his apprenticeship in 2016, Freddie has progressed from Junior Automation Engineer to Senior Automation Engineer to Technical Manager.
Freddie is heavily involved in training and encouraging the next generation of OGM apprentices. He understands the importance of investing in the future of the company and is proud to be a part of a team that values and supports young talent.
Congratulations Freddie, your success story is a shining example of the value of apprenticeships and the importance of investing in young people. Your achievements are a testament to the hard work and dedication that goes into becoming a successful engineer.
Freddie said: “The Awards was a great event. It was fantastic to see all of the young new apprentices being rewarded for their hard work and those who support them being recognised for their efforts. Special thanks to the Engineering trust for the amazing award.”
Here, at OGM, we have a long history of developing young people into key roles and our apprenticeship program contributes to our succession planning. We were therefore particularly honoured to also be nominated and highly commended as Apprentice Employer of the Year.
