STFC Apprentices among finalists in the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards

12 March 2019

Rounding off the success of National Apprentice Week at Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), two of our apprentices are in the running for the Oxfordshire Apprentice Awards.

Tristan Canfer is a fourth year electronic engineering apprentice and has been named as a finalist in the Advanced Apprentice of the year category. Tristan’s work ethic and enthusiasm got him the nomination.

He’s delighted to be a finalist. “I’ve been given such a wide range of opportunities through my apprenticeship. The community of mentors I’ve worked with have allowed me to develop so many skills with their patience and expert guidance,” he said.

Emma Hancock is in the second year of her Digital and Technology Solutions Professional Degree Apprenticeship. She is in the final round of the Higher Apprentice of the year category.

She said: “I have learnt so much through my rotations around site, and would not have been able to do this without everyone’s help and support.”

Emma was praised for her professionalism, drive and her effective approach to learning.

STFC Head of Apprenticeship schemes, Helen Johnson, said: “We are incredibly proud that Tristan and Emma are both finalists in this year’s Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards. I am told the number and quality of submissions this year has been very high, so reaching the final is an amazing achievement.”

The winners will be announced on Thursday 4 April in Oxford.

STFC has apprenticeship vacancies ranging from engineering, computing, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), business administration, heating and ventilation to carpentry. Apprentices are based at one of our world-leading facilities at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Oxfordshire, Daresbury Laboratory (DL) in Cheshire, and the UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UKATC) in Edinburgh.
