Apprenticeship award nomination
St Cuthberts Mill, based in Haybridge, picks up another apprenticeship award nomination with their Quality & Technical Apprentice Nicola Dobson.
From over 1500 students currently being mentored by Bridgwater College, Nicola was nominated for the ‘Intermediate Apprentice of the Year’ award, in the Arts and Technology section, and she was awarded with the Runner Up position.
Previously St Cuthberts Mill was nominated for the Business Newcomer of the Year, and has successfully had 5 apprentices complete their qualifications, they currently have one working towards her Business Administration qualification and a further two apprentices starting in January 2016.
”The apprenticeship scheme has been amazing for St Cuthberts Mill. We’ve used the programme successfully to recruit the next generation of papermakers with the craft of making the high quality artists paper made at the mill” commented Catherine Frood, Marketing Executive.
Since completing her apprenticeship Nicola has been given the full time position of ‘Quality & Technical Technician’ at St Cuthberts Mill.
