Scolmore sponsors the second Electrical Apprentice of the Year competition

Following the huge success of the inaugural event last year, which attracted more than 400 entrants from across the UK, Scolmore Group is delighted to announce its continued sponsorship of the NICEIC and ELECSA Electrical Apprentice of the Year competition.

Now in its second year, the competition launches in September 2016, for all Level 3 students, and will once again seek to test the skills and knowledge of those candidates who put themselves forward.  The brightest talents will be rewarded with a range of prizes – including holiday vouchers worth £2000 for the winner, £750 for the runner up and £250 for third place.  The eight finalists will also each receive an engraved trophy, an iPad and a ‘Van Pack’ of Scolmore products, while the college of the overall winner will receive £1000 worth of Scolmore products.

There are three stages to the competition.  An online assessment to test levels of electrical knowledge will be open to all students, with the top 20% qualifying for the next round – a 90 minute practical exam to be held at a number of locations across the UK and marked by industry experts.  Eight students with the highest scores from stage two will go through to the final.  Every college that enters 20 students or more for the competition will receive a Scolmore College Pack containing a variety of Scolmore products.

The grand final will take place at Scolmore Group’s head offices in Tamworth, Staffordshire, on Tuesday, 6th June, when candidates will be required to complete a number of challenging practical tasks over the course of the day.  The Electrical Apprentice of the Year will be crowned at a special barbecue and awards ceremony to be held at The Belfry Hotel & Resort that evening.

Commenting on the company’s continued association with the initiative, Marie Parry, Scolmore marketing director, said:  “We couldn’t be more pleased with how last year’s event went.  The talent of the individuals who made it through to the finals was very impressive indeed and we are hoping to build on this success and attract even more entries and industry interest as the competition gathers momentum.  

“We value highly the role that NICEIC and ELECSA play in educating and developing the electricians of the future and we are excited to be playing a key role in this prestigious award, which will encourage the next generation of talent.”
