An invitation to the House of Commons came as recognition for apprentice Grant Leah who travelled to London during National Apprenticeship Week.

Grant joined the Wincle Beer Company last year. He was invited to join the celebration of apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

The event took place in the Terrance Pavilion, House of Commons and recognised apprenticeships in the pub, bar, brewing and casual dining sectors.

Grant is currently completing his apprenticeship in Brewing with the Wincle Beer Company while working towards his NVQ Level two qualification in brewing technology.

The eighteen year-old said: “The invitation came as a big surprise but it was great to be invited to such a prestigious event. The day included some inspirational speeches from industry leaders and showed how good training with a committed employer can be the springboard to a promising career.”

Head brewer at the Wincle Beer Co., Giles Meadows joined Grant for the celebration and said: “In the time that Grant has been with us he has gone from strength to strength. In addition to working towards his qualification he’s a real asset to the brewing team. Since passing his driving test he’s also working out on the road, building customer relationships and delivering our beer.

“He’s a real team player and will be joining us on a permanent, full-time basis at the end of his training.”
