Apprenticeship training organisation JTL had a successful night at the recent Asian Apprenticeship Awards held at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, the home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club.
The organisation was awarded the Learning Provider of the Year Award for 2018 and one of its apprentices – Shabeeb Mohammed from Rotherham - won Apprentice of the Year in the Construction sector. Mohammed, a plumbing apprentice, works for Fortem in Yorkshire.
JTL has been influential in increasing the numbers of apprentices joining the electrical and heating and plumbing industries from the black, Asian and minority ethnic sectors. For a number of years, it has been running an ambassador programme to encourage apprentices from under represented communities to enter the apprenticeship field, with the more than thirty young ambassadors participating in activities to encourage others from their communities to consider applying for apprenticeships through JTL into the building services sector.
