Lewis engineers top award by showing the value of precision in manufacturing
Nobody can deny that Lewis Sandoe, 18, has shown almost perfect precision in his work at Lymington Precision Engineers (LPE). He has landed a top award after only a year in the post.
Lewis, from Highcliffe has just completed his first year as an Engineering Apprentice with the high technology company, where he has been awarded a distinction and the prestigious Vaughan Award for Outstanding Achievement.
Said Lewis: “What a fascinating year this has been, the diversity of the work has really surprised me, it has opened up my eyes to the potential of a career in the field of hi-tech engineering."
Lewis took A-levels in Maths, Physics and Chemistry while studying at St Peter’s School in Bournemouth before enrolling on the B-Tec Level 2 Engineering Course at Bournemouth and Poole College.
Under the guidance of Lecturers, Kevin Chapel and Conrad Vaughan at the College as well as and Simon Gover, who LPE appointed to be his personal tutor, Lewis has demonstrated exceptional talent at the many tasks he’s been set in the first year.
“They have all been brilliant in guiding me through this demanding year and I hope to go on to even better things next year working towards a HNC and possibly on to a place at Solent University, Southampton”.
Lewis’s achievement is further recognition of LPE’s continued support of the Apprenticeship Scheme and follows on from Lyndon Booker being awarded Apprentice of the Year in 2011from the same college.
Bournemouth & Poole College’s Engineering Apprenticeship courses have established a powerful reputation in the region.
