Score Group plc and training partner Peterhead Engineers Development Limited enjoyed more success at the Scottish Engineering Apprentice Craft Competition award ceremony held at Peterhead Engineering Development Limited’s training centre on Thursday 28th September with our competitor taking second place, following on from two wins in the competition’s mechanical engineering category in 2015 and 2016.
The annual competition sponsored by Score Group plc, and this year supported by Developing the Young Workforce(DYW) North-East, was held in June at Tullos Training and saw competitors from across Scotland competing in the two categories, for electrical and mechanical engineering. The competition takes place over one day and the entrants, who are all second year apprentices, are set the challenging task of completing two practical skills tests and two written exam papers. The competition remains the hardest to win for any engineering apprentice in Scotland, requiring practical skills, engineering knowledge and a cool head.
PEDL and Score Group’s William Addison took second place in the hard fought competition behind Tullos Training’s Jackie Adams (Expro). In the Electrical Engineering category Tullos Training’s Stuart Milne (MEE) took second place to North Highland College’s Natalie Cornwell (Rolls Royce).
The winners and runners-up were presented with their awards by James Bream on behalf of DYW North-East in front of proud representatives from their training providers and employers.
Conrad Ritchie, Managing Director of Score International Limited said following the award ceremony, “These young people are the future and have excelled during this competition. All the entrants chosen to participate are winners and are role models to other young people. We were delighted to sponsor the competition this year and look forward to continuing our support for this long running event. We would encourage all training providers to field a candidate next year as participation alone has a positive effect all round.”
