Nine Coleg Cambria students are celebrating after being recognised at the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF) Wales Future Manufacturing Awards.
The awards highlight the resilience, determination and ingenuity of the UK’s manufacturing community.
They celebrate innovation and the achievements of apprentices and young engineering students. Coleg Cambria learners dominated the finalists and winners at the ceremony held at Chester Racecourse.
In the 1st Year Apprentice category, Sion Lloyd of JCB took first place, with Rhys Vincent from Airbus coming second and DRB Group’s Josh Jenkins being Highly Commended.
Devon Sumner from Airbus took the first place award for 2nd Year Apprentice. In the 3rd Year Apprentice category JCB’s Daniel Biggs came first, Jonathan Humphries from Kellogg’s came second and Natasha Cooper of UPM was Highly Commended.
First place in the 4th Year Apprentice award was won by Dan Holland from Airbus and the Pathways to Apprenticeship (PtA) award saw Raytheon’s Hayley Keeley coming second.
Both Sion Lloyd and Daniel Biggs will proceed to represent Wales at the National EEF Awards held in London in January.
Coleg Cambria Principal and Chief Executive, David Jones said:
“We are delighted that so many of our learners have received the EEF Wales Manufacturing Awards. It clearly demonstrates our commitment as a college to work with employers to provide opportunities for young people as well as challenging them to develop the expertise they need to build successful futures. We wish Sion Lloyd and Daniel Biggs, both apprentices with JCB, the best of luck in the national final next year”.
