Lyndon Booker - Apprentice of the year
Life is sweet for high flying apprentice Lyndon Booker, 20, from New Milton and he does not need Lord Sugar to tell him that.
Lyndon is toasting his success after winning the Apprentice of the Year award, an annual tribute awarded by The Bournemouth & Poole College and supported by high precision engineering company Lymington Precision Engineers, of Lymington.
Lyndon just did what generations of apprentices have done in the great cause of UK engineering enterprises; he’s worked hard and been totally dedicated to learning the skills at LPE and it’s paid off.
He’s now working for the company having demonstrated that he has the potential to go far in the field.
Craig Robinson, Engineering Apprenticeship Co-ordinator, said: “Lyndon has been an excellent learner working hard to fit his course work in around the practical needs of a cutting edge company like LPE with whom The College has such an excellent relationship.”
Lyndon said: “I owe this honour to the company and The College staff who have all been great. Winning the award is the icing on the cake for me.”
Company Production Manager and apprentice mentor Nathan Davies said: “Lyndon is a credit to The College. He is a product of how our company benefits by working closely alongside The College to train and guide young men and women to ensure that this country has quality engineers to create wealth in our economy.”
