Student from Brent college is named London’s best apprentice

Giannini Chambers is studying at the College of North West London,

A student studying in Brent has been named London’s best apprentice by a national training organisation.

Training charity JTL recognised the achievements of Giannini Chambers, a student at the College of North West London, which has campuses in Willesden and Wembley, by rewarding him with a trophy and cheque for �700.

Mr Chambers said: “I am incredibly pleased with my award and proud of what I’ve achieved so far, but mindful that where I am is not the end but the beginning.

“Throughout my apprenticeship I’ve always tried to apply myself, especially in areas I did not feel initially confident in after leaving school.”

The 21-year-old, who is currently undertaking a BTEC in Building Services Engineering to add to his qualifications in Electronics, Welding and Environmental Technology, also offered advice for future apprentices.

He said: “You get out of an apprenticeship only what you put in and the harder you work the more you receive.”
