Our National Grid Higher Apprentices and Engineering Trainees successfully graduated from Aston University last month.
This was a key milestone in their New Talent training programme and means that they have completed either a Foundation Degree in Electrical Power Engineering (Power Systems Management), a Foundation Degree in Electrical Power Engineering (Transmission) or a Foundation Degree in Engineering.
The event was a chance for the Academy and business representatives to celebrate the apprentices’ and trainees’ achievements together with their friends, families and other graduates.
In total, there were 19 National Grid graduates from Electricity Transmission (ET) and Gas Transmission; including an Engineer from ET who was completing the qualification as part of their development in their current job role.
In addition, several of the National Grid graduates were recognised with separate awards – congratulations to:
Adam Rea, PMC ETP3 Trainee – The Mike Stephenson memorial prize
Manish Odedara, ET Higher Apprentice – Best Student on the Transmission Programme
Kahil Ram, ET Higher Apprentice – Best Student on the Power Systems Programme
Michael Robinson, ET Substation Engineer – a Special Merit Prize
