The Apprenticeship scheme at Dyer Engineering has been a very important part of our 40-year history and through-out the years the scheme has helped develop many of our existing, valuable, highly skilled team members to become what they are today.
The Apprentice of the Year award for 2017 was awarded on 15th June 2018, to Kayleigh Ward who has recently completed an NVQ level 3 Business Administration apprenticeship.
Since Kayleigh joined Dyer Engineering, she has already embraced many aspects of the business and is now focusing on developing her career path as a Quality, Safety, Health & Environment specialist and has already made it clear she has ambitions to be our next QSHE Manager.
Kayleigh’s cheerful personality, passion to learn, along with her understanding and demonstration of the Dyer core values makes Kayleigh Ward a worthy winner of the 2017 Paul Dyer annual Apprentice of the Year award.
The award was presented by Graeme Parkins and Richard Bradley in front of some of her colleagues.
Margaret Craddock (BatchLine Divisional Lead) commented, “Kayleigh is respected and trusted by everyone, is always willing to help and continually tries to work SmarterStrongerTogether. Kayleigh makes a significant contribution to Continuous Improvement, always looking for Smarter ways to do things and she has forged strong relationships with everyone she makes contact with. Kayleigh’s open and honest approach to her work, demonstrates daily, the Together ethos we all strive towards”
Graeme Parkins (Managing Director) said, “Our Apprenticeship programme is hugely important in addressing the long-term employment needs of the business, but much more significantly than that, seeing people like Kayleigh join the business as a shy, young person and grow into a highly confident and competent member of the team, who embraces our SmarterStrongerTogether ethos, really highlights the exciting kind of business we are striving to create at Dyer Engineering. Well done Kayleigh – and keep doing what you do”.
