Joe Kennie (21), who won the Post-First Year Craft Apprentice of the Year Award, moved to Worcester to undertake a three-year apprenticeship with Mazak and is currently working in the heavy machining section.

Richard Smith, European group managing director at Yamazaki Mazak, said: “We have expanded our apprenticeship scheme significantly in recent years and now have more than 50 apprentices working in our European headquarters and manufacturing facility.

“These three awards are testament to the ‘can do’ attitude of all our apprentices, their enthusiasm and their willingness to learn.”
