Lee Jones scoops Apprentice of the Year accolade

Congratulations to our very own AV Projects Apprentice Lee Jones who has been awarded Apprentice of the Year by Basingstoke College of Technology (BCoT) for his chosen discipline Creative Digital Media Level 3, Year 2.

Lee has been commended for his hard work and dedication to his course, as Sarah Folan, Training Consultant for BCoT for Business explains: 

“Every year BCoT asks the lecturers and supporting staff to nominate an outstanding learner for the award and Lee was the first choice of all his tutors. His attendance record and attitude to his apprenticeship have been outstanding. This formed part of a greater review which also included interviews with his team at Focus 21 and his professional commitment and ability to take his learnings into that environment are also very impressive. Lee is a well-deserved candidate and I’m sure he’ll be making waves in his industry for years to come.”

“This is a fantastic accolade to have been awarded but I couldn’t have done it without the incredible support from the team here at Focus 21. The AV industry and the technologies that we work with are evolving on a daily basis so I’m excited to see what the future holds and how I can be a part of developing the landscape.”
