Glasgow Kelvin College was delighted to learn that two student Refrigeration apprentices have excelled at the recent Institute of Refrigeration Awards, and are a fine example of the excellent learning and teaching from their team of proud tutors.
Conor Davidson of KB Refrigeration Ltd carried off the top award, Scottish Apprentice of the Year, with Joshua Collins receiving the Runner-Up award in the same category.
Having been unemployed, Conor came to Glasgow Kelvin in 2015 as a full-time student on the full-time City & Guilds Refrigeration and Air Conditioning course where he worked hard and claimed the class prize. He deservedly landed a job with KB Refrigeration and returned to College as a Modern Apprentice on the SVQ Level 3 Refrigeration programme. His tutors said;
“Conor excelled on this course, settling in well, and contributed to the positive learning environment with his infections appetite for all things Refrigeration! He went on to achieve the Level 3 award in Refrigeration as well as College Course Prize Winner.”
Joshua Collins, who works with JD Cooling Systems, is on the Level 3 award and has drawn very positive comments from his tutors;
“Josh has consistently demonstrated a mature attitude to his College based learning. He has blossomed into an extremely competent apprentice with obvious aptitude to become a very accomplished engineer. He will undoubtedly achieve the Level 3 award and aside from that is a positive influence among his peers, always offering to assist and support their own learning experience.”
Congratulations go to these young men and to the staff who have supported them over the years.
