Scottish Craft Apprentice of the Year is announced

Liam Dean was named Scottish Craft Apprentice of the Year during the presentation of the HVACR Awards for Outstanding Achievement, in a ceremony held at the headquarters of B&ES Scotland.

Mr Dean, who is employed by KB Refrigeration and is a student at North Glasgow College, received his trophy – the David Kettles Cup – from B&ES president Sue Sharp.

In her address to the gathering, Mrs Sharp noted that it was particularly pleasing that, in spite of the continuing recession, firms in Scotland were able to recruit and train young people.

Indeed, the building engineering services sector could congratulate itself on the exceptional commitment it had shown to apprentice training over many years, said the president.

“The future of the UK depends on the existence of a high-calibre workforce, so it makes good sense that – wherever possible – we should nurture our own bright young talent,” Mrs Sharp insisted.
