TLJ engineering apprentice wins third prestigious industry award

Following his double win in 2018, Hull-based TLJ Security Systems’ electrical engineering apprentice, Lewis Wankiewicz, has won a further industry accolade.

To add to his Hull Training and Adult Education (HTAE) twin awards in 2018, for Engineering Centre Apprentice of the Year and HTAE Learner of the Year, Lewis has won the Hull Association of Engineers’ Jack Hutchcroft Apprentice Award 2019.

The presentation took place on Friday 1st March at the Association’s Annual Student Awards dinner. Lewis was nominated for the prize by the HTAE and declared winner by the committee of the Hull Association of Engineers.

Presenting the award, the Association’s Chairman, Chris Arundell, said: “We were particularly impressed by Lewis’ submission for the Jack Hutchcroft Apprentice Award. Not least because he hasn’t come through the traditional Higher Education route taken by winners of some other catgories, rather through being ‘on the tools’ and supplementing this with his studies at Hull Training. It’s that level of commitment that leads us to believe that with Lewis, and his peers, the future of engineering is in safe hands.”

TLJ Director, Tony Martin, said: “We couldn’t be happier for Lewis. This is the third major award he has won in the last few months, following his success at the HTAE awards in 2018. It’s truly deserved and a testament to his hard work and positive attitude, especially in the sometimes daunting environment of the construction industry. We’re proud to have Lewis on board and, as we’re committed to developing new apprentices, hope that he can act a role model and mentor. Well done from everyone at TLJ.”
