BMet apprentice wins national cleaning company prize
A Cleaning and Environmental Services apprentice from James Watt College, part of BMet, has been officially recognised for his top-class cleaning prowess and dedication.
20-year-old Liam Emanuel was honoured with a certificate to celebrate his achievements on March 2 at the City and Guilds London Institute Livery Company Awards. The event was held at Mansion House in London.
The awards recognise the very best individuals and organisations from all sectors who have demonstrated exceptional achievement through training and skills development.
Liam unanimously impressed judges with his expertise and exemplary attitude.
The hard-working talented apprentice stood out from the crowd for achieving high level results whilst facing personal challenges.
Speaking of his achievement Liam said:
“I am so very happy to have won this award, which means so much to me. I wasn’t expecting to win and I didn’t know awards like this existed!
“I am hoping I can use my accomplishment to show future employers what I am capable of!”
The Rt Hon Lord Mayor, Alderman William Russell and a representative of the relevant Livery Company presented Liam and other prize winners with their awards.
Liam began his apprenticeship at James Watt College, part of BMet, in 2018. On the course Liam has learned about the cleaning industry and its standards, alongside practical skills needed for the workplace.
As part of his course, he secured a placement as a Ward Services Officer at Sandwell Hospital, where he has since gained permanent employment.
Liam’s tutor Joanne Phillips, who nominated him for the award, said:
“We are over the moon that Liam has been selected for this award and it is a fantastic accolade for him to be recognised for his dedication in maintaining high standards in the NHS.“
Liam’s passion and dedication enabled him to flourish during his apprenticeship and he was awarded two distinctions, for his practical assessment of Cleaning of Interiors and Washrooms – applying attention to detail whilst carrying out his cleaning practices.
