John Thompson, 4th year Refrigeration Apprentice at Glasgow Kelvin College, has certainly been making a name for himself this year and has just carried off the Scottish Institute of Refrigeration Apprentice of the Year Award!
This is his third Award this year and a hugely well-deserved recognition of John’s skills, talent and determination.
His success also owes much to the skills of the Building Engineering Services teaching staff at Glasgow Kelvin and to the confidence and commitment of his employer, Turner (Dundee) Ltd.
A time-served plasterer, John retrained in refrigeration and hasn’t looked back since. His obvious skills and talents have opened other doors for him and he has been asked to attend future events to present awards.
Winning the Institute of Refrigeration Award has been an exceptional way to finish off the year as the prestigious award comes from such a well-respected organisation.
Although he has now completed his learning at the College, he hopes to stay in touch and the College looks forward to welcoming him back on future visits.
