TOP trainee Matthew Stanton picked up an apprenticeship award on behalf of all in the navy.
The 20-year-old Air Engineering Technician, based at HMS Sultan, collected the award at the National Apprenticeship Awards.
He said: ‘It was such an honour to appear at such a prestigious event. It was such a phenomenal experience where I got to meet so many amazing people. Apprenticeships are a good way for people to learn a trade and to get paid at the same time.’
AET Stanton joined the navy in March and collected the award to all armed forces for their work with apprentices on behalf of the navy.
A representative from each other service also collected the award.
