Awards and achievements
South West Water Award Winning Apprenticeship Programme
Advanced Apprentice of the Year at the South West Region
Brett Walter was named as the Highly Commended Advanced Apprentice of the Year at the South West Regional finals of the National Apprenticeship Awards last month. He was shortlisted from over 1000 applications nationally.
Brett lives in Exeter and works as an accountant within the Finance team. He started his apprenticeship in August 2014. Over the last two years Brett has achieved his AAT Level 2 and 3 qualifications and exceeded expectations with a 100% pass rate while also advancing at work, creating efficient processes and procedures.
His hard work has resulted in his progression from apprentice to a full time employee as a Capital Assistant Accountant and has also allowed him to get work leave to spend a month volunteering teaching English in rural Thailand schools.
Brett considers himself a role model to apprentices as he has exceeded expectations and will continue doing so while mentoring apprentices in his new role.
