Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, has praised constituent and Raytheon UK’s Apprentice, Adele Hughes, on being awarded a bronze medal at the World Skills UK Competition this year.
Ms Hughes took part in World Skills UK competition this year and underwent a 7-month process of regional heats and intensive training before getting to the national finals. Ms Hughes then competed with 400 other students across 60 competitions and was successfully awarded a bronze medal in the Aeronautical Engineering: Mechanical category.
Mr Baynes also praised Ms Hughes’ hard work and previous success earlier in the year on winning a gold award in Aeronautical Engineering at Skills Competition Wales.
Raytheon UK Training Manager Lee Edison said:
“This award is a much-deserved reflection of Adele’s hard work and her commitment to learning at Raytheon.
“In a peer group of excellent apprentices, it has long been plain to see that Adele has the drive and the dedication to become an exceptional aircraft engineer. I’m delighted that her ambitions have been supported by our outstanding team here at Raytheon Broughton and our academic partner Coleg Cambria.
"We encourage all young students to look at gaining careers via apprenticeships, everyone has the opportunity to work on exciting opportunities in engineering, and we’re hugely proud to see Adele continuing to go from strength to strength. We can’t wait to see what she’ll achieve next.”
Simon Baynes MP said:
“I would like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Adele on her success being awarded a bronze medal at the World Skills UK Competition this year, and also, for her earlier achievement of winning a gold award in Aeronautical Engineering at Skills Competition Wales. This is a remarkable achievement and demonstrates her hard work and dedication in the field. And I wish her the very best in her career and for the future.”
