Vocational Qualifications Awards 2018

One of the College’s Higher Apprentices in Construction, Adam Griffiths, has been shortlisted for Learner of the Year (Higher) at the Vocational Qualifications Awards 2018.

Adam has been nominated by his tutors and assessors at the College for his enthusiasm and willingness to learn throughout his apprenticeship journey and has shown keen interest in pursuing a career in civil engineering.

The Award recognises and celebrates those who use technical, practical and vocational qualifications to achieve success and provides organisations and individuals with the acknowledgement they deserve.

Adam gained his GCSE and A level qualifications at secondary school and chose to follow the apprenticeship route in order to learn valuable new skills whilst earning a wage. Since attending the College, he has achieved many separate qualifications including Essential Skills Wales courses, a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment and an Apprenticeship Level 3 in Civil Engineering for Technicians.

Throughout his Apprenticeship, Adam’s tutors and assessors have all identified him as an exceptional learner, which is reflected in his attainments, contributions to his employer and his achievements. 

An awards ceremony will be held at The Exchange Hotel on the evening of Thursday 3 May 2018 – we wish Adam good luck!

I am now able to confidently perform engineering tasks using technical skills, principles and sector knowledge, that I developed through the Apprenticeship program. This has increased my ability and competence to provide technical drawings and location plans for works such as highways improvements.
