ABP awards recognise Ayr apprentice's achievements

May 17, 2016

The commitment of ABP’s ports of Ayr and Troon to training the next generation has been recognised at ABP’s first ever group Apprentice Awards in Leeds.

The awards consisted of nominees from ABP’s network of 21 ports. Sean McCulloch, an Electrical Engineering Apprentice at the ports of Ayr and Troon won the Best College Achievement award. Sean, who has been with ABP since 2014, won the honour after scoring straight As in his exams.

He was also shortlisted for the Apprentice of the Year Award 2015.

Stuart Cresswell, Port Manager, ABP Ayr and Troon, said: “Sean is developing skills in areas that are vital to ensure day-to-day port operations run smoothly. He is making great strides both in college and on the port and is already a valued member of the team.”

Sean said: “I am looking forward to finishing my apprenticeship and working my way up the business and learning new skills. It’s a brilliant opportunity. There’s a lot of varied work and I learn things you would never learn from going to college every day.”

ABP has over 60 apprentices working across the UK and at this year’s awards 32 apprentices were nominated across ten categories.
