This was a night to celebrate ingenuity and Enginuity – and the extraordinary efforts of individuals, institutions and businesses across the country

Apprentice Davina Kaur has risen from the depths of depression to being crowned The Best of British Engineering at the Enginuity Skills Awards.

Davina, aged 19 from Hinkley, told the virtual gathering of industry leaders, sponsors and nominees, that winning the award was her proudest moment. The ultra-high achiever who also picked up the SME Apprentice of the Year (Sponsored by BAE Systems) award, decided to tell the World how far she had come on her journey including her battle with mental health issues. She told host Steph McGovern how being the first female on the shop floor made her very proud.

The eagerly awaited Enginuity Skills Awards – postponed from last year due to the Covid pandemic – were hosted on Thursday evening by Steph McGovern from her Packed Lunch TV studios and honoured some extraordinary people across the country who are making such a difference in the engineering and manufacturing sector.

The night was full of glamour, fun and celebration with over 300 people attending, a few pets made an appearance too!

Steph, who is celebrating the recommissioning of her hit daily show, is a qualified engineer in her own right and has championed engineers and engineering.

Steph said: “Engineering literally floats boats, keeps us safe and healthy and helps us live life to the full. What’s not to like?

“Davina and all the winners and nominees represent the very best that this country has to offer – and is a powerful reminder of just why engineering is so important to all of us.”

The sector is set to play a crucial role on the road to economic recovery and Enginuity is at the heart of optimising potential by connecting employers, educators, individuals and governments to boost skills, production and planning.
