A teenager from Suffolk has been named an apprentice ‘rising star’ by his employer, UK Power Networks.  

Cameron Carne from Onehouse was nominated for the UK Power Networks’ annual Living our Values Awards as ‘one to look out for’ because of his mature approach to work and interactions with both colleagues and members of the public alike.   

The 19-year-old chose an apprenticeship over university and has been working at the firm's Ipswich depot fixing power cuts or working on new electrical connections.  

Cameron explained that an apprenticeship was just what he was looking for.  

He said: “This is exactly what I wanted to do. I came to the company for work experience and then applied for an apprenticeship. I didn’t want to be stuck in an office.

“All my friends have gone to university but an apprenticeship is a great way to work and learn,” he added. 

Having recently finished his apprenticeship, Cameron said he was delighted to be presented with the award by his employer.
