Resource Group celebrates an outstanding Apprentice Award Ceremony.

On Tuesday 17th September Resource Group was delighted to host the 2019 Apprentice Award Ceremony, an event that celebrates the hard work and dedication of all 78 Apprentices who have completed their Foundation Phase. The ceremony took place at Hangar K4, Cotswold Airport, where the Resource Group Training Solutions division is based.

There was a tremendous collaborative effort from everyone within the Training Solutions division to make the day a real success.  The Ceremony brought together Apprentices, their families and employers from across the country with a total of 270 individuals attending. Employers included British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, easyJet, DHL, Cobham, Marshall, CHC Helicopters and Thomas Cook. The event itself brought together some of the world’s leading aviation and aerospace organisations.

It was a great opportunity for the Apprentices family members to view the hangar and workshop facilities where the Apprentices have spent the last 10 months of their training.

The day itself was not only an opportunity for awards and celebration but was a platform to inspire the #nextgeneration of engineers entering the aviation and aerospace industry. Joining the Resource Group staff there were several keynote speakers such as Jenny Body OBE and Owain Thomas who delivered passionate and inspiring speeches.

Jenny Body OBE is a British aerospace engineer, who was a former President of the Royal Aeronautical Society and Owain Thomas a CHC Apprentice who completed his CAT A training in 2008 with us at Kemble. Now he is a Licenced Engineer working for Bristow Helicopters Search and Rescue.

The day itself was empowering and made all the more successful with the support of Parallel Blue (event management solution), Corinium Cleaning and Malthouse Creations. We would like to say a massive thank you for all of your support.

Ian Fitzpatrick, Managing Director comments; 

”It was with great pleasure that we were able to welcome our Apprentices, their families and friends, esteemed clients and special guests. The day was a hugely enjoyable celebration of the Apprentices achievements whilst recognition was also made of the enormous collective effort sitting behind this outstanding apprenticeship programme which I believe is unparalleled.  

I would take the opportunity to pass on my heartfelt and personal thanks to all concerned in making this a day to live long in the memory, I look forward to many more.”
