SNIPEF FVC winners
SNIPEF win for Jordan
A Forth Valley College Modern Apprentice (MA) has won a prestigious regional plumbing award, at a prize giving ceremony held at Edinburgh College on Thursday 25 October.
Fourth year MA Jordan Muir (21) from Linlithgow, was presented with the Scottish and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation (SNIPEF) Edinburgh and District Region, David A More Trophy, for being the best MA in the area.
David Balmer, Lecturer in the Department of Construction, said: “We are so proud of all our MA students who won an award at the SNIPEF event as they have worked very hard during their studies to improve and enhance their skills.
“Jordan is a well deserved winner of the overall top prize as he has been an outstanding student and plumber during his time as an MA. This is the third year in a row that FVC has produced the David A More prize winner and this is great recognition for us as a college. Without a doubt it shows that we have great expertise in helping to develop some of the best plumbing Modern Apprentices in the whole of Scotland.”
The SNIPEF Edinburgh and District Branch started up the annual ceremony to recognise those apprentices – from Edinburgh, Borders and Forth Valley Colleges - who excel in their performance at college and are committed to completing their recognised Plumbing Industry four year Modern Apprenticeship.
Four other outstanding FVC apprentices were also recognised at their own college level at the SNIPEF Awards:
Best 1st year Apprentice – Robbie Davidson (19) from Stirling.
Most Improved 1st year MA - Grant Flynn (18) from Stirling.
Best 2nd year Apprentice – Chrystian Klemczak (21) from Denny.
Best 3rd Year Apprentice - Chloe Paterson (24) from Bonnybridge.
