A Forth Valley College Modern Apprentice (MA) has won a prestigious regional plumbing award, at a prize giving ceremony held at Borders College on Thursday 6 October.

Third year MA Steven Christie (26) from Stirling, who works for James Paterson Plumbing and Heating Ltd in Denny 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.

Danny Houston, Curriculum Manager in FVC’s Department of Construction, said: “Steven was recognised for his significant achievements in his coursework and his commitment to learning. His lecturers say he has made a great effort throughout his course and shows himself to be a positive mentor in Plumbing. We are all very proud of him and his achievement will be an inspiration to his peers at the College.”

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.

The presentations were made by Mr Robin Hall, President of SNIPEF Edinburgh and District Branch and Allan Hogg, Area Sales Manager of Plumb Center who generously donated tool vouchers prizes. The awards themselves were sponsored by BPEC who are the plumbing and heating industry’s certification and training organisation delivering UKAS and Ofqal qualifications
