Lanarkshire’s finest securities apprentices were recently celebrated for completion of their apprenticeship programmes with New College Lanarkshire.
Almost 40 Modern Apprenticeship students who had completed the Modern Apprenticeship in Electronic Fire and Security Systems at the College’s Motherwell Campus were presented with their certificates of achievement at an awards ceremony in front of employers, friends, family, staff and fellow students.
The apprentices completed the three-year programme, which combines theory and skills taught within the College environment with the practical experiences of the workplace. Along with receiving certificates of programme completion, four students were granted special awards for their outstanding achievements.
Jack Cameron, 20, from Grangemouth was named Most Improved Apprentice, due to his exceptional work ethic, academic achievement and commitment to the apprenticeship.
Mark Hunter from Bailleston and Ross Wotherspoon from Motherwell, both apprentices with Eclipse in Dunfermline, were awarded for being the highest achievers in their class, along with Graham Robertson Electrical apprentice, Martin Hannaway from Motherwell.
Mark was also named overall apprentice of the year, awarded for his outstanding achievement across the three-year programme. All award winners received vouchers from college partner, Alarm Supplies, which provides fire and security equipment to ensure the College’s apprenticeship programme stays relevant to the industry’s needs. Sales Manager, Donny Hughes also presented a special award at the ceremony.
