Saturday (6th October) saw the 2018 North East Scotland College (Fraserburgh Campus) Graduation ceremony take place. Once again, Score Group plc was delighted to be part of the proceedings to not only congratulate its own graduates but also to share in the success of the future generation.
This year saw 33 of our apprentices graduate with Higher National Certificates (HNC) in Engineering Practice, Mechanical Engineering or Measurement and Control. A further four apprentices, two of which are now time-served, received Higher National Diplomas (HND) in Mechanical Engineering. Many of these two groups are now pursuing further education to HND and degree level.
Score is elated to see these young men and women achieve another milestone in their career paths and we look forward to see them progress for many years to come within the organisation. The company’s apprenticeship programme, both in Peterhead and at our global locations, is a steadfast component and will remain as such in the future.
As with previous years, Score Group sponsored a number of awards to college graduates who have shown exceptional aptitude, commitment or determination during their studies and this year these awards were presented by Mr Bill Urquhart, Managing Director of Score Subsea and Wellhead Limited.
Following the presentation to graduates, Mr John Wallace, a prominent figure in Fraserburgh, Peterhead and beyond was presented by the college with an honorary fellowship award. After graciously accepting, he gave an inspiring talk to all in the atrium arena on how he worked first through adversity, later becoming an entrepreneur and ultimately playing key roles in the success and development of both Fraserburgh and Peterhead ports. His key message was to be all you can be, turn negatives into positives, and work hard to achieve your goals and dreams for the future.
Ms Liz McIntyre, Principal of NESCOL gave a final vote of thanks and congratulations to the graduates, and of course Mr Wallace before closing the ceremony.
We would like to once again congratulate all graduates on the awards they received and trust they then went on to celebrate their achievements with family and friends.
