Apprentice of the year 2018

In June 2018, A.W. Jenkinson Transport’s Vehicle Maintenance Apprentice, Craig Scott was awarded Most Improved and Dedicated Apprentice for 2018.

Craig, who is based at the A.W. Jenkinson Transport Lockerbie depot, has made exceptional progress since he joined the Company in 2016. Craig’s assessors from Carlisle College picked up on his determination and enthusiasm for work, as he would come into the yard early each day to complete important jobs before College started. They were also impressed with the amount of knowledge that Craig had gained from his position, noting that he would often would explain things to the other students during their classes.

Craig is now on call in the evenings and regularly travels throughout Scotland, successfully completing many repairs independently. He is part of a large, friendly team in the Maintenance Department at Lockerbie and has completed various relevant training courses on subjects such as ABS Braking Systems and Electrical Issues.

We warmly congratulate Craig on his award and look forward to his continued success as a valued member of the A.W. Jenkinson Transport Maintenance Team.
