Finalist

Andrew Bennett

Andrew Bennett is determined not to let dyslexia and losing his sight in one eye stand in the way of a successful career. The 51-year-old recycling advisor from Abergele has achieved a Foundation Apprenticeship in Sustainable Recycling Activities, is working towards an apprenticeship and is now mentoring his workmates.

Andrew’s progression has secured him promotion to acting supervisor with Colwyn Bay based Bryson Recycling, which has invested in his job-related training.

Andrew, who has been supported by his employer and learning provider Cambrian Training, said,

I have developed an appetite for learning that I never thought I would and have moved on to an apprenticeship to give me the opportunity to succeed in my career.”
