Declan Wallace – won the Institute of Refrigeration Scotland Apprentice of the Year Award at the recent IOR dinner held at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Glasgow. Declan works for William Whitfield
Declan has been a credit to not only himself, but to his company in the way he applies himself at College. Practically and theoretically his abilities have been of the highest standards. He has a great eye for detail, a willingness to learn & take on board all things new.
We have challenged Declan and taken him out of his comfort zone on occasion and he continues to go above and beyond the expected standards set by the College.
Declan’s nomination was a unanimous decision from the lecturing staff, who all praised his attitude and motivation to give 100% commitment to the course.
Scott Findlay – was runner up to Declan at the Awards
Scott has consistently proven his 100% commitment to become the best student and the best engineer he can be. Every task is planned and executed to ensure the highest levels of excellence is achieved regardless of the complexity of the activity.
Scott is always on hand to assist other students who might be struggling both in the class and within the workshop environment.
Scott is also a very pleasant individual with a real talent to lead from the front and to motivate others to perform at their best.
Ross Brogan (City Refrigeration) – Won the BESA National Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Apprentice of the year
Ross continued to produce outstanding results and progress at his time at College, a real example of how hard work, self-motivation and a thirst for knowledge leads to success.
Ross attended Glasgow Kelvin College for 5 years in total obtaining the City and Guilds 7189 in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (winning the class prize for that year), a SVQ Level III in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (winning both the 2nd and 3rd year class prize as well as the 3rd year BESA Award) and also obtained a NC in Building services.
Ross is a true example of what can be achieved when you have a clear focus and drive towards a goal.
The staff in the section are so pleased at Ross’s continued success.
Congratulations go to the apprentices and the staff who supported them from the entire College – a huge ‘Well Done’ to everyone involved in their achievements!
