National awards success for Yamazaki Mazak’s Philip Jackson and Stewart Billings


Yamazaki Mazak’s commitment to education and training has enabled two employees, Philip Jackson and Stewart Billings, to achieve success in national training awards organised by the Gauge & Toolmakers Association. The presentations for the 2007 GTMA Training Awards were made at the Association’s annual luncheon in April when Philip Jackson received the Nicholas Van Moppes Trophy with a certificate and cheque for £300 to mark his second place in the GTMA Apprentice of the Year category. Stewart Billings’ first place in the NVQ qualifications category was acknowledged with a certificate and cheque for £100.



Philip Jackson has also been selected to compete for a place in the final of the World Skills competition as the UK’s CNC machining representative in the 21-strong team that will compete for international honours in Japan later this year.



Both presentations were made by Nik Tipler, GTMA President and Managing Partner of the Wines Group, and David George, Standards & Qualifications Manager with SEMTA (Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technology Alliance), the industry organisation with Sector Skills Council responsibility for improving education and training within relevant industry sectors.



Dave Barnett, Yamazaki Mazak’s Training & Manufacturing Support Engineer, added his congratulations to those of the GTMA judging panel, saying that both men had worked hard and thoroughly deserved their awards.
