The annual Banff and Buchan College graduation ceremony was held recently at the main campus in Fraserburgh.
Once again, Score Group was at the forefront of achievements with their biggest group of graduates in the company’s history with a total of 38 honours.
The company’s engineering apprentices were the largest representation from the company with a total of five Higher National Diplomas one of which received a special award.
Twenty-five Higher National Certificates in Mechanical Engineering also graduated. In addition, an HNC in Electrical Engineering and another in Welding were also obtained.
Yielding a grand total of 32 HNDs and Cs in engineering disciplines, the company said it was “a marvellous achievement by the apprentice group of which the company is exceedingly proud”. These team members currently work in various departments and divisions of Score (Europe) Limited, Score Energy Limited, and Score Marine Limited, all of which are based in Peterhead. In addition, two team members from the financial department were also recognised with HNDs in Accounting and Finance with one being further recognised with a Scottish Qualification Authority prize. An HNC in Business and Administration was gained by a Score Europe sales and administration team member who also received a special college award.
The information technology department operating under Score Europe, servicing all hardware, software and communications for the group saw yet another qualified team member awarded with an HNC in Computing.
This graduate has already been at a number of Score’s remote locations including Dubai, Norway and Canada involved in networking, hardware and software upgrades and is a valued member of the team.
Continuing on a computing theme, it was an especially proud day for Score Training And Multimedia Productions Limited (S.T.A.M.P.) who saw their first two graphics apprentices awarded HNCs in Interactive Media. One of these was additionally recognised with a special award. He has now moved from S.T.A.M.P. to Score Europe’s drawing office and is now studying towards an HNC in Mechanical Engineering.
Score Group is committed to continuing its training provision in the years ahead in order that the future skills, experience and knowledge is not merely maintained but grows year on year. The Group’s highly commended apprenticeship scheme is stronger than ever and in many ways is the backbone of the organisations success and continued expansion globally, with now more than 30 locations worldwide.
