A young apprentice has been honoured by one of the industry’s top training providers.

Davis Peck, 20, from Hornchurch, who works for mechanical and electrical building services specialist J S Wright, received the Plumbing Apprentice of the Year award from Choice Training.

At Choice’s training centre in Dagenham last week, Davis was presented with a trophy for his dedication, enthusiasm and willingness to help other trainees, and a certificate.

“Davis has proved one of the best students we have ever had, a pleasure to teach, and an excellent apprentice,” said Robert Tye, a director at Choice Training.

“Davis passed every exam with ease, completed an outstanding NVQ portfolio and went further by helping various classmates. That willingness is what we want to see in all our students. He is a credit to J S Wright.”

The apprentice, who was one of 75 trainees on the course, passed his Level 2 and Level 3 National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) in Plumbing.
