Joe May of Daikin Applied Service Wins Apprentice of the Year

The Daikin Applied Service Apprenticeship Scheme has been running now for seven years and the programme has gone from strength to strength.

The “Apprentice of the Year” award has been introduced to commend the hard work, dedication and achievements of our young apprentices.  The apprentices have to go through a monthly assessment to monitor their development; it is split into six sections: ability, attitude, appearance, paperwork, time keeping and monthly work book reports, all of which are considered when selecting the talented winner.

Following twelve months of hard work by all the apprentices the final tally along with references from their Managers, Supervisors and the engineers, culminated in Joe May (DAPS Southern) being awarded with the accolade of “Apprentice of the Year 2016”.

Mark Commented “I would like to congratulate Joe on being awarded the apprentice of the year 2016. It has been a very tightly run competition this year with numerous apprentices all within a hairs breadth of clinching the title. Joe has showed positive attitude throughout the year and it has been a pleasure working with him”. I’m looking forward to 2017 being part of the apprentice programme and can only hope that this year the scheme grows and everyone involved show as much enthusiasm as they have in 2016”.

Barry Coe, National Service Manager added “I would like to congratulate Joe on his achievement as the winner of the Apprentice of the Year award for 2016. I would also like to thank Mark Bailey for his enthusiasm and commitment since being appointment as the Apprentice Mentor. I’m sure 2017 will again prove to be a challenging one for the young people involved in the scheme while continually striving for success”.
