Calling all apprentices and their managers! Entries are now open to this year’s National Student of the Year Awards, get your nominations in now!
The RAC National Student of the Year Award recognises the achievements of the best up and coming engineers and celebrates their contribution to the industry.
If you have an engineer in training that you think is worthy of competing with the best refrigeration and air conditioning students in the country, ensure they enter.
All of the student of the year finalists will be invited to the annual Cooling Awards ceremony taking place at the London Hilton, Park Lane on 26th Septemberwhere they will be able to rub shoulders with over 700 of the industries finest and find out who has won the coveted award.
Last year’s winner Scott Berry of JD Cooling, said: “I would not hesitate to recommend apprentices within the cooling industry to enter the National Student of the Year Awards, as it’s recognition of their progressionand ability, as well as that of their company & training provider.”
“It’s also promotes a ‘feel good factor” for both company & apprentice. My confidence has improved with everyday tasks i.e.; communication with customers, on site works & my general development.”
