JN Bentley apprentice named Groundworker of the Year by Grimsby Institute

Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education have presented their first ever Groundworker Apprentice of the Year award to Jack Jewkes, a Level 2 GCO groundworker apprentice from the @one alliance collaborative skills team working at JN Bentley.


Explaining why Jack was chosen for this award, the judges commended the fact that “Jack has settled in well with JN Bentley, impressing his managers and colleagues with his hard work ethic.”


They further commented:


“Jack has had to go out of his comfort zone on several occasions and he joined the JNB training manager at the ‘Yorkshire & Humber Speakers for schools’ campaign event in 2021, where he gave a presentation to over 200 pupils about his apprenticeship journey.


He has had good progress on his NVQ and has proved to be a good and reliable worker.”


Speaking about his win, Jack said:


“To be noticed for the hard work and dedication I have put into the apprenticeship so far is overwhelming. Being able to speak to schools on Microsoft Teams about my journey on the apprenticeship, to featuring in the @one alliance newspaper shows that the work you do doesn’t go unnoticed.

When starting the apprenticeship I hadn’t much of a clue on what jobs I’d be doing, so I was a bit nervous on what to expect and what was going to be expected of me. Since then,

I have done a variety of projects, each one allowing me to learn new skills along the apprenticeship program, include talking in front of a large group of people to being trained on jobs within an experienced gang.”


Groundworker apprentices work closely with site engineers to prepare sites ready for construction works to begin, by interpreting design specifications and assisting throughout the process, from conception to completion, working closely with all on-site construction personnel.
