City College Plymouth is celebrating the success of welding and fabrication apprentices who have taken part in and won various prizes in a number of recent national and regional competitions.

Three of the College’s first year fabrication apprentices competed in the recent Institute of Sheet Metal Engineering (ISME) national competition held at the Morgan Car Factory, Worcestershire. San Ryan, Ryan Chapman and Conner Kent entered the Wall Vent and Open Class events, with Conner being named winner in the Wall Vent category.

The College recently hosted the South West regional heats for WorldSkills Sheet Metalwork and Skill Weld UK, judged by WorldSkills judges. In the WorldSkills Sheet Metalwork competition, the College’s first year fabrication apprentices did very well with Jake Plumley taking first place and Conner Kent second place. In the Skill Weld UK competition our first year welding apprentices also took first and second place: Aaron Wells was named as the winner and Kieran O’Brien as the runner-up.

Nick Dawe, Academy Manager, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing, said: “We are very proud of all our apprentices who have represented the College brilliantly by taking part in these competitions. Congratulations to you all!” 

The WorldSkills and Skill Weld UK prize winners will be scored to see whether they have been selected to compete in the national finals later in the year.
