IET Apprentice of the Year Award – open for entries! 5041
IET Apprentice of the Year Award – open for entries!
The winner will be recognised at the renowned IET Achievement Awards Ceremony this November. This is a high profile event attended by engineering movers and shakers, providing excellent networking opportunities. Here they will be presented with a trophy and certificate, also receiving £1,000 and two years free IET membership, including technician professional registration application fee when they’re ready to apply.
Last year’s title went to Josh Barber, an apprentice circuit engineer at ABB Ltd. He was awarded the title thanks to his work on the Pen y Cymoedd wind energy project, where the company is delivering a wind farm grid connection into National Grid’s transmission network on behalf of Vattenfall.
Josh redesigned a supplies pillar marshalling kiosk layout to improve safety, efficiency and reduce installation errors by providing a more intuitive link between the wiring board and the substation layout. This won approval from senior engineers, his supervisors and ABB’s customers. His kiosk design has now been adopted as standard as it will save money by reducing installation and commissioning time.
