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.
