Outstanding Apprentice Award For C&D Employee

Spring 2012


Ross Dolan (as pictured) Engineering apprentice who has been with C&D for 3 years was awarded 'Outstanding Apprentice of the Year' at the IN-COMM Apprenticeship Graduation Ceremony 2012. The awards ceremony took place at Walsall Football Club on the 30th of March and was attended by young apprentices and companies across the West- Midlands all hoping to walk away with the prestigious award. Ross was nominated for this particular category as he has demonstrated outstanding practical experience whilst achieving numerous qualifications such as an NVQ in Technical Services and Performing Engineering Operations which has helped him to develop his skills as an Engineer. Ross said, "My confidence over the last 3 years has improved dramatically, I am so glad that I joined an apprentice scheme with Craig and Derricott (C&D) because its provided me with the skills and ability to perform in a highly successful manufacturing company whilst independently working towards the qualifications needed to support my career. My confidence and achievements have led me to win the outstanding apprentice of the year award which I am thrilled about'.


Nico Kent another C&D apprentice picked up an award for graduating in the category of 'IN-COMM Engineering Academy' for successfully passing his NVQ diploma in Performing Engineering Operations levels 2.
