Dale Power Solutions‘ Higher Apprentice, Natasha Pitts, was honoured at the National Apprenticeship Awards last week, taking home the Highly Commended award in recognition for her exceptional work as a higher apprentice.
Natasha has worked at Dale Power Solutions since September 2010 on an Advanced Apprenticeship in electrical and electronic engineering. She completed her Advanced Apprenticeship 2 years early and progressed onto a Higher Apprenticeship.
Natasha’s Apprenticeship has helped her to become a valued team member and is seen as a star of the future and a role model to all apprentices. She has helped to develop training equipment for Dale Power Solutions training partner (Derwent Training) to enhance the learning experience of other apprentices.
Natasha is very passionate about engineering and science and is very proud to promote engineering and the power of apprenticeships in local schools through her role as a STEM ambassador and encourages young people into stimulating, rewarding and enjoyable careers through an apprenticeship.
On receiving her Highly Commended award, Natasha said: “I am very proud to have achieved the highly commended award at the national apprenticeship awards finals in Birmingham. It is both a privilege and an honour to achieve such an award, to be in the top 3 in the country is a fantastic achievement and one that I could have only dreamt of when I joined Dale 3 years ago as an advanced apprentice.”
Tim Wilkins, Chief Executive of Dale Power Solutions, said: “Natasha is a fantastic example of the contribution apprentices have made to our business and how they become part of the future of our business and an integral part of Dale Power Solutions team.”
