Celebrating Port Apprenticeships at the East Kent Apprenticeship Awards 2019

The Port of Dover’s Project Manager Apprentice, Lucy Hallett, has been nominated for the East Kent Apprenticeship Awards 2019

The East Kent Apprenticeships Awards aim to recognise both apprentices and those businesses and organisations providing the valuable opportunities.

Lucy was shortlisted amongst several nominees and has been doing a Level 4 Associate Project Manager (APM) course at the Port, having achieved her APM Project Manager’s Qualification (PMQ) last December.

Already an Associate member of the APM, Lucy is delighted to have been nominated, saying: “My apprenticeship has helped me get into a project management career by giving me the necessary work experience in the Engineering department, where I have been assisting engineers with large scale projects and managing smaller projects on my own, such as repairing the sea wall on the promenade. Working at the port has given me experience with fairly unique maritime engineering projects, opening up a whole new career path for me.”

Lucy’s 2-year apprenticeship started in September 2017.

The Port of Dover apprenticeship programme offers exciting opportunities to school and college leavers such as the chance to study towards nationally recognised qualifications and gain valuable work experience whilst receiving a salary.

Apprenticeships at the Port include Mechanical & Electrical, Construction Management and Cyber Security.
