Lewis Boden won the Overall Apprentice of the Year 2019 award at the annual Herefordshire & Ludlow College Apprenticeship Awards Evening. Lewis completed his apprenticeship in Electrical Installation with Connexus.
“I decided to study for an apprenticeship due to family commitments, as I wanted to earn a living and learn a trade at the same time, whilst being able to support my family.
I would say that completing my apprenticeship was the best part for me, seeing all the hard work I had put in and accomplishing something. I put in so much effort and worked so hard to become qualified. I plan to continue on with Connexus and hope to learn more about the ins and outs of the business and work my way up, going at it with the same tenacious attitude I had throughout my apprenticeship.
I would certainly recommend an apprenticeship at the College, as my tutors have been really supportive and I found it great to earn alongside studying.”
