Just in time for National Apprenticeship Week, MacroArt, a Moss Global Company, and Learn2Print, a provider of training in print and graphics, has announced its Learner of The Year.

Geneve Gurr, a member of the MacroArt print and fabrication team since 2021 has progressed through the company’s training programme leading to her winning the latest accolade from Learn2Print.

As a provider of industry-recognised qualifications, Learn2Print works with a variety of companies within the printing industry to upskill workers in the industry as well as to safeguard staff and offer new jobs and opportunities.

Sponsored by Heidelberg, the award recognises an individual in print who exhibits ‘exceptional’ qualities and achievements within their learning journey.

Gurr’s six tutors all recognised her progression, eagerness for knowledge, and high work standards making it a unanimous decision for her to win the award.

Learn2Print surprised Gurr and the MacroArt team, which is based in St Neots, Cambridge, by visiting to announce the news along with presenting a trophy, gift voucher, flowers, and a certificate in recognition of Gurr’s achievements.

Speaking about the award, Jonathan Bray, managing director of Learn2Print, explains: “Our award is now sponsored by Heidelberg which has recognised what we do for the industry and now also has apprentices on board with us. It has really become a highly recognised and prestigious award.”

Speaking about the win, Gurr says: “I am delighted to be awarded Learner of the Year by Learn2Print. I didn’t know when I started with MacroArt in 2021 where this journey would take me, but with the support of everyone here I’ve been able to make huge strides in this industry and I can’t wait for what’s next!”

Recently MacroArt expanded its training programme with a partnership with Inspire 2 Ignite, which focuses on bridging the gap between NEET (Not in Employment, Education, or Training) youths in the UK.

Speaking about Gurr’s achievement, Lee Garnett, continuous improvement manager at MacroArt, adds: “Since joining us three years ago, Geneve has gone from strength to strength. Everybody at MacroArt is so proud of her accomplishment. Nurturing talent in the industry is part and parcel of what we do as a business. She’s a tremendous success story and the perfect example of what is possible with the right attitude and application.”
