Ambitious trainee chef Luke Ramsey was named as the HIT Training regional apprentice of the year.
The 24-year-old was given the award at a graduation ceremony for 37 level two and three apprentices from across Kent, Surrey and Sussex who are registered with HIT and employers from across the hospitality, catering and care sectors.
He recently completed a level two professional cookery apprenticeship with the King’s Head pub, in Lewes, East Sussex, where he is already head chef, and has now moved on to level three.
Jill Whittaker, HIT managing director, said: “Luke stood out from other HIT apprentices because he showed real ambition to climb the catering career ladder. He is extremely career driven and I’m delighted that he has continued to build his experience and has gone on to study for an apprenticeship.”
