The deputy general manager at The Fenay Bridge, a Fayre & Square pub at Penistone Road, Fenay Bridge, has been awarded a Level 3 Leadership & Management qualification by his employer, Spirit Pub Company.

Gavin was one of more than 30 apprentices who were congratulated on gaining the qualification at a special event in the West Midlands.

Spirit HR director Debbie Moore said: “It is important at Spirit that we celebrate the success of our apprentices. It takes time, commitment and dedication to see through an apprenticeship programme, especially while also managing the day to day requirements of their job.

“Gavin has done a fantastic job achieving his qualification and he is definitely on the right path to taking on his own pub in the near future.”

The Level 3 Leadership & Management qualification is a 12-month learning and development programme that includes on-the-job training and individually- tailored learning.
