01 July 2011 - Hettich employee wins coveted national educational award

Sylwia Laskowska of Hettich Jewellers was announced as the proud recipient of the coveted Bransom JET 1 Project Assignment Award for July 2011.

The award is presented to those who are taking the Jewellery Education & Training Courses 1 & 2 (termed JET for short) and subsequent examination, run by The National Association of Goldsmiths.  This course has become the benchmark for retail jewellers' staff. Studied over 18 months, it's designed to provide first-class product knowledge and a wide ranging understanding of the trade, including design, manufacture, hallmarking, gemstones, silverware, horology, antiques, legal matters, repair handling, selling techniques and window displays.

Sylwia received A* grades for her first four pieces of JET 1 course assignment work.  Jeffrey Chinn, Managing Director of Hettich Jewellers, commented 'Sylwia is such an asset to Hettich Jewellers.  We pride ourselves on being able to offer our customers expert advice and we are thrilled that all Sylwia's efforts have been recognised in such a prestigious way.  Well done Sylwia!'
