Robertson named Gemini Apprentice of the Year

Gemini Taunton apprentice Cahal Robertson was named Mike Watts Apprentice of the Year at the company’s annual awards night, held at the Manufacturing Technology Centre near Coventry.

Robertson recorded the most merits and a distinction in gaining his Multi Skilled Technician apprenticeship and was presented with an Apple iPad, complete with latest detachable keyboard, courtesy of Ezi Methods.

Ben Cardy, co-founder and commercial director for Ezi Methods, said: “We have long held a close working relationship with Gemini, watching how the business has developed its own apprenticeship programme has been a privilege and must be admired by our industry. The business is clearly reaping the benefits with its continual production line of new talented individuals who are the future of the business, repairers who will always need official repair methods.

“While every successful apprentice thoroughly deserves to be recognised, Cahal clearly showed his true passion for the industry. I am delighted we are able to help continue his journey with our small gesture.”

Dave Sargeant, managing director for Gemini, added: “The event celebrated our apprentices and the best newcomers to the accident repair industry. For the past six years, we have worked with over 100 apprentices to develop them, provide skills, and provide people with careers as well as the opportunity to further advance their skills with Gemini. A huge congratulations to all winners and to Cahal Robertson for achieving his full apprenticeship with such high classification.”
