A Clyst St George teenager has been presented with a certificate after successfully completing his apprenticeship at a natural ingredient company.

George Wheatley, 19, was presented with the award by Devon County Council’s economic development officer, Victoria Gage.

His apprenticeship began in January 2014 when LittlePod employed him as a production assistant.

He has completed his FDQ Level 3 Certificate for Proficiency in Food Industry Skills at Duchy College in Cornwall.

George said: “It’s a great way to not only gain a valuable qualification, but to give you a chance to integrate these skills into a business.

“I was ecstatic to complete the programme and I owe a lot to the in-house training I received from LittlePod and my mentor, Sam Davey, for the support he’s given me.

“It’s given me a sense of achievement and completion and the self-motivation to push forward. I have a way to get back into the education system and now I can look forward to a professional future.”

He will continue to work at LittlePod until July and is looking at what learning opportunities are available to him.
