Fraser Wins UK Apprentice of the Year Award

Talented Glasgow Kelvin College fourth year Building Engineering Services apprentice, Fraser Imrie, has just scooped the UK BESA Service and Maintenance Engineer Apprentice of the Year Award.

24yr old Fraser from Inverness had earlier this year won the Scottish BESA (Building Engineering Services Association) overall Apprentice of the Year which was presented to him at the Scottish Parliament in May.  He went forward from this to represent Scotland at the national competition where he once again excelled by, this time, winning the coveted UK award.

Fraser was presented with his award at a glittering ceremony in the Park Plaza London Riverbank Hotel by senior personnel from BESA, while his proud Mum and Dad looked on.  With them were Directors from Fraser’s employer, Richard Irvin Energy Solutions.  Kim Woolner, HR & Corporate Services Director and Mark Buchan, Business Unit Director for Facilities Management were delighted to witness his achievement.

This national recognition for Fraser is a testament to his own hard work and that of his excellent lecturers at the College for the high-level of skills provision and support they deliver.

Fraser expressed his wish to thank the College lecturing staff for their continued support and assistance in attaining both prestigious awards.

The College is very proud of what Fraser has achieved and looks forward to following his career with interest.  He is pictured here with his award, between his proud parents.
