Students from East Coast College have excelled and won best overall college at the Norfolk and Waveney Building Apprentices’ Competition 2018 as well as three gold medals and two silver medals!
The competition gave students a chance to showcase the skills that they have been working so hard on and all students gave their best efforts in a bid to show what they can do.
This was the first time that the college has entered as East Coast College and the win has given the students the confidence, going forward, to know that they can achieve anything they put their minds to.
Reece Swatman won Gold in Brickwork, Joshua Fryer won Gold in Carpentry, Ethan Hall won Gold in Electrical Installation, Jay Tipper won Silver in Plumbing and Keane Squires won silver in Multi-Skills. Also competing were Harry Goodman, Thomas Tennant, Sean New and Faisal Yousef. The judges of the competition said that the ECC students who didn’t manage to win a medal scored very well which is why the college was awarded best overall.
East Coast College curriculum manager, John French, said:
“I would like to thank all staff and students that were involved in the NAWAC, we ended up with some outstanding results. The combined scores did give us the best score as a College, this is an exceptional result for the teams, department and East Coast College. A local Employer that attended the event will be interviewing two of our students for a potential apprenticeship, based purely on their demonstration of ability and attitude”.
