Essential Site Skills team member shortlisted for Rising Star Award


Essential Site Skills (ESS) are delighted to announce that their team member Matt Fletcher has been named as a finalist for the Rising Star Award at The Learning Awards 2020.

The Learning Awards is an annual event that celebrates outstanding individuals in the world of Learning & Development, organised by The Learning and Performance Institute. Receiving one of these awards is the ultimate accolade for anyone working in the industry.

On the back of his exceptional performance in a business support role, Matt was identified 12 months ago as having the drive, enthusiasm and appetite to develop his career as a trainer. His high performance has gone from strength to strength since then, proving to be an invaluable asset to the ESS team within such a short period of time.

Travelling up and down the country, Matt delivers training in some of the most dangerous areas of the construction industry, exemplifying a trainer who goes the extra mile and puts the learner at the forefront of the learning and development experience. His hard work and endeavour have helped him change lives for the better.

Matt said, “It’s a huge honour to even be nominated in the rising star category for the LPI Learning awards, but to be selected as a finalist and have the opportunity to present to the judging panel gives me a great sense of pride.”

Training and Consultancy Director, Darren O’Neill, spoke on behalf of ESS: “Having performed an incredible job as Training & Consultancy Instructor, it’s been a brilliant year for Matt, and he is fully deserving of the recognition he is receiving.”

“The whole team at ESS are incredibly proud of Matt and wish him all the best in the coming awards ceremony.”

Matt’s nomination is just the latest success for ESS. At the The Learning Awards 2019, ESS were finalists in the Learning Provider of the Year category, with Training and Consultancy Manager, Michael Harcourt, winning the Rising Star Silver Award.

The Learning Awards 2020 will take place on 20th February 2020 from London’s Hilton Hotel.
