One of Marshall Construction’s apprentices Craig Falconer has won an award at the Annual National Construction College Scotland Awards, 26th June 2014. Craig was up against serious competition, however on the day he was awarded the top 1st year “Roof Sheeting & Cladding” Apprentice Award. Following on from 2013 when four of our apprentices came top of their year, Craig…..has scooped the first trophy available in 2014.
The annual awards are run and hosted by the National Construction College (NCC), which is the training division of industry body CITB. They recognise the successes and achievements of construction apprentices who have made an exceptional contribution to their studies in their specific trades.
The NCC is the largest construction college in Europe and supports over 30,000 individuals every year – including over 700 apprentices.
Robert Marshall, Managing Director commented “I am proud of what Craig has accomplished by receiving this award – this demonstrates that Marshall Construction apprentices are an excellent example of the value and positive impact Modern Apprentices can have in tackling youth unemployment and improving economic growth prospects. We have consistently shown our commitment to nurturing emerging talent year after year, we are big on developing skilled people and it really helps to have enthusiastic and capable apprentices who are willing to learn. Apprentices play an important role in our economy and it’s good to see work is already underway with the next generation.”
