Celebrating outstanding apprentices

Three young apprentices at Ealing Council are in the running to win regional awards – each shortlisted in distinct categories.

The trio are up for honours at the London Council Apprenticeship Awards, which is being held in September. The event highlights the dedication and progress made by apprentices across the capital, in their areas of work.

Councillor Peter Mason, Leader of Ealing Council said: “I always really enjoy meeting and working with our apprentices. Their energy, enthusiasm and willingness to learn is infectious. We remain committed to nurturing local talent, forging strong partnerships, and creating a supportive environment for apprentices to thrive. We eagerly await the award announcements and will continue to champion apprenticeships as a pathway to success and a fulfilling career for many in our communities.”

Councillor Louise Brett, the council’s cabinet member for decent living incomes, said: “I couldn’t be prouder of our borough’s exceptional apprentices and their outstanding achievements. The London Council Apprenticeship Awards celebrate these remarkable individuals’ determination, talent, and dedication who have embraced opportunities and overcome challenges to excel in their chosen fields. Our apprentices, Marcus Shalaby, Suzanna Lovell, and Tyler Pearce-Scott are shining examples and inspire us all with their passion and commitment.”

Category 1 – Best Contribution by a New Apprentice: Marcus Shalaby

Meet Marcus Shalaby, a young apprentice who overcame challenges and set an inspiring example for others. Marcus, the youngest candidate secured a Level 3 business administration apprenticeship.

Marcus excels in his role, and actively supports his peers and takes the lead in various projects. His efforts have significantly improved customer experiences, streamlined team efficiency, and strengthened partnerships. Marcus is a true asset to the team and the community.

Category 2 – Best Progression by an Apprentice: Suzanna Lovell

Suzanna Lovell started with a business administrator apprenticeship. Suzanna’s ambition led her to a ground breaking achievement—an assistant surveyor role through a degree apprenticeship, a first for Ealing Council.

Suzanna’s path was not without its obstacles, but she refused to be deterred and remained steadfast in her pursuit of breaking gender barriers in the surveying field. Suzanna has demonstrated her capabilities as a young professional by managing her caseload and coordinating the council’s handyperson scheme.

Beyond her work achievements, Suzanna actively promotes apprenticeships within the community and speaks to various organisations to encourage others to follow her example. Her dedication to changing people’s lives for the better has made her a shining example for aspiring apprentices across Ealing.

Category 3 – Best Apprentice Working in the Supply Chain: Tyler Pearce-Scott

Tyler Pearce-Scott, a communications technician apprentice at HS2’s Old Oak Common construction partner, BBVS, represents the best of the borough’s local talent. Born and raised in Ealing, Tyler embarked on his apprenticeship journey as soon as he finished school.

His role as a communications technician apprentice involves setting up IT facilities at BBVS’s new site office in Ealing, highlighting his technical prowess and dedication to his craft. His commitment to giving back to the community that raised him sets Tyler apart. He actively seeks opportunities to contribute to and uplift his local area through his work.
