IMechE Trip

A group of six Score apprentices travelled to London on Wednesday 29th February 2012 to visit the IMechE headquarters (Institute of Mechanical Engineers).

The apprentices made a set of candlesticks as a presentation gift to the Chief Executive of IMechE, Stephen Tetlow, MBE, on a recent visit to Score in Peterhead. Mr Tetlow was so impressed with his gift; he invited them all to London to see around the IMechE headquarters. Following the tour of the building, the guests were all served a 3 course meal in the Stevenson Room, named after the founder of the institute, George Stevenson. The candlesticks are currently being displayed in the foyer at IMechE, a great honour for the young apprentices.

Stephen Tetlow MBE, Chief Executive, commented on the visit “Score has a great apprenticeship scheme. It is an example and an exemplar for other companies to follow. Score has great apprentices too! The Institution is proud to support them and to welcome these professional engineering technicians and engineers of the future. It was a huge pleasure to host everyone from Score to our London headquarters”.

The apprentices were accompanied on the trip by Gordon Milne, Apprentice Co-ordinator and David Gregg, Engineering Instructor at Peterhead Engineers Development Ltd. Whilst in London, the group had time to visit the EDF Energy London Eye and the Sea Life London Aquarium before returning home the next evening.
