Atkins apprentice wins award

Posted: 31st of October 2016 by Katie

Sanna Shabir, an apprentice with consulting engineering firm Atkins and studying at the College of North West London, has been named Apprentice of the Year at the annual Consultancy and Engineering ACE Awards.

Sanna, 21, is completing her Level 3 Civil Engineering Apprenticeship through studying at the College and working on major projects for her employers. She was presented with the award at the ACE awards at London’s Grand Connaught Rooms.

She is no stranger to awards evenings, having made the shortlist in the Apprentice category at the 2015 Builder and Engineer Awards. This time however she went one better, winning the award for her consistently excellent work in the classroom and in her job role.

Fellow CNWL student and Atkins employee Lewis Wade also made the shortlist. The night was a double success for Atkins, who also won the Special Recognition Award.

“I am planning to study at Uni on a day-release basis after completing the Advanced Apprenticeship. It is very nice to get the mix of work and learning, especially in civil engineering.”
