A huge congratulations to George Glenny, a valued member of the Oakfield team, for his tremendous achievements! George has been awarded with the prestigious Construction Apprentice of the Year award at the Council House in Nottingham Market Square on the 23rd of May. Later in the evening, he was further recognised as the Overall Apprentice of the Year at the Nottingham College Annual Apprenticeship Awards!

George’s exceptional work in the Construction industry and his unwavering commitment to excellence has earned him this well-deserved award. Being named the Overall Apprentice of the Year was described as ‘the highlight of the evening’. An extraordinary achievement that truly deserves recognition! We are all incredibly proud of you, George, and your well-deserved success!

“For me, when looking at the criteria of the apprentice of the year, I did not want to be blinkered by attendance, handing work in on time or the mark given, even though George has excelled. I wanted to look at everything; the effort, the environment they work in, if they are a team player, what they do for others and the human being. George Glenny embodies every one of these and more. I am proud to have him working at Oakfield and I am sure he makes his family proud every day.”

James Turner, Apprentice Co-ordinator, Oakfield
