Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service’s very own tech whizz has scooped an Apprentice of the Year award.

James Meeds, who is on an 18-month apprenticeship, looks after LCVS’s IT systems and mobile phones, as well as assisting with general administration.

Just seven months into his apprenticeship, James picked up a prize in one of three business categories in the 2019 Boston College’s Apprenticeship Awards, sponsored by Lincolnshire Co-op.

Following the theme of National Apprenticeship Week, ‘Blazing a Trail’, the annual awards event recognised the hard work, commitment and achievements of both apprentices and employers over the past academic year.

Boston College currently trains over 450 apprentices, and out of these 16 apprentices were nominated to receive an Apprentice of the Year award for outstanding achievement and progression during their apprenticeships.

David Fannin, LCVS chief executive, said: “James really deserved the award because he is dedicated and committed to doing an excellent job, always happy to help in a friendly and professional  way and a great team player!”
