TM Services’ apprentice Jordan Wills has been named apprentice of the year out of his class of 40 after completing the first year of a four year Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering at South Leicestershire College.

Jordan, 19, first went to TM Services on a week’s work experience after gaining a BTEC in Engineering. Following an interview he was taken on as an apprentice and returned to college full time.

He is now working four days a week at the company as a service engineer, with one day a week back at college where he is continuing with his studies.

Says TM Machinery director Matt Pearce: “We are delighted that Jordan was selected as apprentice of the year in his first year of training. We aim to employ the very best service engineers in our service division and Jordan has already become a valuable addition to the team."
