ExxonMobil apprentices recognised at awards ceremony

It was a night of pride for a group of apprentices from ExxonMobil at Fawley as they scooped six top honours at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The apprentices have been studying throughout the past year at Southampton Engineering Training Association (SETA) in Millbrook to learn hands-on skills which will enable them to complete their Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship during the second and third year of their training.

During their first year, the apprentices have not only been learning skills for their specific trades, including electrical, instrumentation, machinery and metals, but also picking up tips from other trades to give them extra awareness when working on site at Fawley.

They certainly seem to have made a good first impression, picking up awards across the board at last month’s SETA prize giving. [July]

Lucinda Lang, Maintenance Apprenticeship Supervisor at Fawley, said: “As always, there was lots of competition from other apprentices employed by local companies within the surrounding area.

To pick up as many awards as they did is a real credit to the Fawley apprentices and I would like to congratulate them. We now look forward to welcoming them all on site to continue their learning.”
