Jack Hague, former LEW apprentice, picks up an EDA Learning Achievement Award at a prestigious industry ceremony in March. The annual EDA Education, Training and Learning Awards took place over the 7th, 8th and 9th of March at The Shard in London. Attended by individuals working across the electro-technical sector, the two days celebrated high performing individuals in the industry with awards recognising exceptional management and attitude to learning and personal development.
Jack Hague, Warehouse Operative at our Lincoln branch and recent LEW apprentice, was awarded the EDA’s Learning Achievement Award for his outstanding commitment to learning and personal development during his apprenticeship. Jack completed his apprenticeship with our Lincoln branch and has since accepted a full-time position with the company. Josh Johnson, who manged the branch during Jack’s apprenticeship, comments ”what really stands out with Jack is his work ethic and ‘can do’ attitude. He is always eager to learn more and offer ideas to improve the procedures within the warehouse. With these qualities i can see Jack having a very successful career with LEW and the electrical wholesale industry.’
Margaret Persimmons, CEO of the Electrical Distributors’ Association, added ”the EDA Learning Achievement Awards are particularly special to the talented individuals whose performance has marked them out as the ones to watch in the future.
