The Bexley council apprentice is up for best contribution by a new apprentice
A 20-year-old council apprentice has received recognition from across the capital as his name was shortlisted for a London wide award.
Tom Torode-Sims is in the running for the best contribution by a new apprentice, award.
It recognises his work as a level three apprentice in the waste and recycling team.
The former Erith School student said: “This is the proudest moment of my career so far. During the two years I have spent at Bexley, I have been heavily involved with a number of different projects, most notably the new garden waste scheme, which has proved to be a huge success.
“I look forward to the awards ceremony in September and hopefully I will win!”
Mr Torode-Sims, who turns 21 in September, has been praised by Bexley councillor for education, Rob Leitch.
Cllr Leitch said: “His work in the team has been outstanding and has helped towards the success of an important new scheme.
“He has also become involved in a range of other projects within the council including supporting other apprentices and work experience students.
“I wish him every luck in the awards - but is already a clear winner as far as I’m concerned.”
The London Councils’ Apprenticeship Awards take place on September 16.
