Emma scoops runner up accolade at Chamber Awards

Trafford College apprentice, Emma Coates, is celebrating being named runner-up Apprentice of the Year at the Altrincham & Sale Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, 2018.

Emma picked up her award at a glittering ceremony hosted by local radio DJ Darren Proctor at the Best Western Cresta Court hotel in Altrincham on Thursday 11 October. Over 150 local business people gathered at the seventh annual award ceremony to honour the area’s best businesses and their employees.

Emma, a heating and ventilation apprentice who was crowned overall winner at this year’s student apprenticeship awards, was recognised for her dedication to her apprenticeship programme and her efforts in championing women in STEM industries. From her early career with the armed forces in Iraq, to her role as an apprentice, Emma has shown complete dedication in every role she undertakes which led to her being chosen as the face of a recruitment drive encouraging women in industry.

Such were her capabilities, even in the early stages of her apprenticeship, that she was entrusted with major installation projects at Wrexham Prison and Dumfries Hospital. Her ultimate goal is to show future apprentices the benefits and opportunities that this industry can provide by becoming a college tutor.

Emma commented, “When I was told I was nominated for another apprentice of the year award I was blown away, and to receive runner is a great achievement. I couldn’t be happier.”

Tutor Bob Barlow added, “Emma’s desire to make a real contribution to class activity through her vibrant approach makes her the worthiest recipient of this award. Emma is a meticulous learner;​ she works well on her own, takes the lead when required, and her enthusiasm motivates the class. Emma deserved to be recognised for the degree to which she has achieved and progressed throughout the course, both at college and in her place of work.”
