Robbie Spillard won the Experienced Existing Worker of the Year (Electrical) award sponsored by National Electrical Training (NET), at a recent ceremony held at The British Library on 17 March.
A chance conversation led to a coveted adult electrical apprenticeship for Robbie in August 2007. Since then his employers, Smith & Byford, have been impressed with his commitment to the training and he is regularly sought after to work with more senior engineers. Robbie has become a role model to the entire apprentice department and relishes the opportunity to share his skills and experiences as a mentor.
His commitment to studying and hard work at Kingston College recently saw him being rewarded with a distinction at Level 2 for his City & Guilds 2330 course. He is about to finish his Level 3 and an NVQ Level 3 in Electrotechnical Services.
Les Simms, his Course Tutor who attended the ceremony, commented: “I am extremely pleased for Robbie, as he has worked hard to be successful and thoroughly deserves this award.”
Robbie, who also recently won another award in the Building Engineering Services Training Awards (BEST) for London & South East, said: “My thanks go to the College for their ongoing support.”
