Lewis Boote, DOORCO’s Technology & Systems Assistant, has been awarded IT apprentice of the year at the Maxim business training awards, part of Macclesfield College, following the successful completion of his apprenticeship at DOORCO.
Ben Aspinall, IT & Marketing Manager comments: “Lewis received this award in recognition of the outstanding work, contribution to the business and for excelling in his learning, and his tutor said, “I was blown away by his attitude, impeccable manners and organisational skills’. Throughout his apprenticeship Lewis demonstrated a great attitude to learning and was able to practically apply his education from college to his day-to-day role; he is diligent, well-organised and often demonstrates expertise years beyond a normal apprentice, so it was a no-brainer for us to retain Lewis in a full-time role on completion of his course. We are delighted that Lewis has been given this award by his peers at Maxim training, it is truly well deserved.”
Lewis comments: “I’m really chuffed to receive this award! Taking on an apprenticeship where I can learn at college and gain real life experience in a work placement has been fantastic for me. I would advise anyone thinking of it to just go for it. DOORCO has been incredibly supportive, allowing me time to study as well as offering the type of tasks I need to complete my college work. I feel lucky and excited to be part of this great team and the future I have with the business.”
Ben concludes: “This type of award is a first for DOORCO and we’re privileged to have been highlighted as an important employer in the area because being able to provide opportunity to help people like Lewis to achieve a formal qualification and build a strong foundation for a career is fulfilling in itself, and something we will definitely be continuing with. Once again, massive congratulations to Lewis.”
