Prestigious award for Lucite International Apprentice

Salters' Awards

Lucite International remains committed to investing in apprentices and has an excellent track record in sponsoring and training young people.

Recently, apprentice Cameron Appleyard, 20, won the Salters’* City & Guilds prize for his achievements in Level 3 Process Technology. He is currently working towards the Tees Valley Production Technician (TVPT) apprenticeship and is sponsored by Lucite International at our Cassel site in Billingham.

Cameron started the TVPT course in 2010 and spent two years training at TTE** (Technical Training Group) , before joining the workforce of Lucite International where he is continuing his training in the workplace with the aim of completing his apprenticeship in July 2014.  Cameron works with a chemical production shift team at LI’s Cassel site.  Cameron said: “I’m very proud to win this award and am grateful for the support I have received during my apprenticeship from TTE and Lucite. I have really enjoyed my training and this award is definitely the high point of my apprenticeship so far.”

Jamie Armitage, Lucite International, Cassel Site Operating Manager said, “The team at Cassel are very proud of Cameron and the effort he has put into his apprenticeship. It is good to see that his hard work, and that of the teams he has worked with, has been recognised via this award.”
