An MTC Training apprentice was named Lloyds Banking Group’s SME Apprentice of the Year 2023 during a celebratory event that took place at Lloyds Bank’s London office on 11th July 2023.
Mohammed Ismaeel beat stiff competition to bring home the prestigious trophy, which is awarded annually to a top achieving apprentice working for a business that is supported through Lloyds Bank’s levy transfer scheme.
David Atkinson, Regional Director at Lloyds Bank explains:
Following an unsuccessful experience with a different training provider, Mohammed worked tirelessly to achieve the results he needed to pursue an apprenticeship at MTC Training, the skills arm of the Manufacturing Technology Centre based in Coventry, which aims to close the skills gap and provide the next generation of engineering talent. He was thrilled to be recognised for his achievement and impact since starting his apprenticeship at MTC Training two years ago:
Having built a wealth of foundational skills including milling, turning and metrology during the first year of his apprenticeship at MTC Training, Mohammed is now gaining valuable industry experience at his workplace, Impression Technologies Ltd.
Jonathan Watkins, CEO at Impression Technologies, has seen Mohammed’s growth throughout his apprenticeship first-hand:
Mohammed’s Manager, Craig Edwards, Materials Evaluation Centre Manager said that Impression Technologies Ltd.’s ongoing partnership with MTC Training is an important part of developing new talent at the Coventry-based business:
Matthew Bastock, Apprenticeship Programme Manager, applauded Mohammed for making the most of this opportunity, which positions him favourably as he enters the world of engineering:
At MTC Training, apprentices have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment, enrichment activities and industry-experienced trainers, which see them develop the knowledge and expertise required to build a career in an exciting, thriving and innovative environment.
