CATCH celebrates outstanding achievements at inaugural Apprenticeship Awards

CATCH, the leading provider of industrial apprenticeships, based in Stallingborough, proudly hosted its first annual Apprenticeship Awards ceremony on 6th July. The event recognised the accomplishments of the rising stars of the future and showcased their outstanding contributions to the industry.

The CATCH Apprenticeship Awards, which were hosted at the Stallingborough Grange Hotel, brought together professionals, industry leaders, apprentices, and their families to honor the dedication and commitment displayed by the next generation of industry craftspeople.

Throughout the event, attendees heard from prominent people in the industry, who commended the hard work and determination of the apprentices. The awards ceremony highlighted the importance of apprenticeships in developing practical skills, nurturing talent, and building a workforce for the future.

Among the highlights of the evening was the presentation of various awards in recognition of outstanding achievements.

The Reynolds Apprentice of the Year  – Henry Whitehead, Birch Solutions. This prestigious award celebrated the apprentice who demonstrated exceptional technical proficiency, a strong work ethic, and outstanding contributions to their team and organisation.

Henry commented, “”As someone who’s come back into education later in life, I’ve come a long way in my learning and development since starting the apprenticeship, so receiving this award really meant a lot to me and showed that I’m on the right career path.”

“We have created the CATCH Apprenticeship Awards to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our exceptional apprentices,” said Eve McIntosh, Apprentice Account manager, CATCH

“Their dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment to their respective specialisms are a testament to the bright future that lies ahead. We are immensely proud of their accomplishments and grateful for their contributions to our industry.  We are proud to offer the most employer focused pathways in the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Humber regions and the awards ceremony serves as a reminder of the importance of investing in apprenticeships and providing a premium hands on experience for aspiring craftspeople”
