Star apprentice Levi Craze celebrated in style recently at London’s iconic Shard after collecting a Learning Achievement Award 2018 presented by trade association The Electrical Distributors’ Association (EDA), as part of its National Apprenticeship Week celebrations 2018.


Levi works for the Bideford branch of Devondale Electrical Wholesalers, one of the EDA’s members. He said of his win: “It was a great honour to receive the award – I thoroughly enjoyed attending the event at the Shard.”


Branch manager, Sam Stephens who also attended the event at the Shard, added: “This is a tremendous achievement for Levi, who really showed incredible commitment to his role as an apprentice.


“It is a much-prized national award, and everyone in the company is extremely proud of him.”


Levi has now been taken on full-time in the branch and is currently mentoring Devondale Bideford’s new apprentice.


Margaret Fitzsimons, CEO at the EDA, said “Our annual EDA Awards recognise outstanding achievement by apprentices who have demonstrated excellence in their performance and a commitment to both their training and to their employer.


“There are fantastic career opportunities in the UK’s electrical wholesale sector and we hope this win encourages others to think about joining the industry.”


The EDA’s Apprenticeship Programme is open to members of the Association and is managed by partners EDA Apprenticeships Plus who sponsored the awards lunch.
