Month: March 2019
We’re happy to announce that the winner of Tech LDN Apprentice of the Month is Nyle @ X4 Group!
LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP). Read Nyle’s nomination from his line-manager Sam Bysouth below:
Energy: Nyle has the immediate disadvantage of working in a very fast-paced, pressurised environment, so it is a credit to him that he is able to keep up with all of the demands of the company. He brings a really proactive energy to his work, and is always asking for other tasks that he can complete for us. He has recently begun working with our newest apprentice Bola, and is already having a positive influence on Bola’s work ethic and attitude.
Enthusiasm: What makes Nyle a pleasure to work with is his enthusiasm not only for his day to day work at X4 Group, but also the enthusiasm he has for his learning with LDN. He is constantly looking for ways to improve his knowledge and has a real passion for IT and supporting people. Whether it is dealing with a complex strategic IT issue, or helping with a small operational task, his enthusiasm means he is always up for doing his best.
Willingness To Learn: Nyle has taken to his apprenticeship so well because of his real understanding of his potential to grow and advance his own knowledge with X4 Group and LDN. He will never miss an opportunity to learn, and so is constantly taking notes if we are covering something new to him.
Ability To Take Feedback: By having a mature and humble approach to his work, Nyle is always able to absorb feedback and pick out the key parts of this feedback that will allow him to learn and improve moving forwards. In his supervisory role with Bola he is also beginning to give feedback, which I am confident in his ability to do, and I hope will also allow him to continue to understand the value of giving and receiving feedback.
Propensity To Take Action: Nyle is a pleasure to manage because he is always keen to do what is needed to complete any task set for him. He is proactive in recognising areas or problems requiring his support, and is always forward-thinking in terms of upcoming issues and potential areas for improvement.
