Two students who are working towards a Modern apprenticeship in Welding and Fabrication at Banff and Buchan College have again excelled in the regional heat of the prestigious BOC Welder Scotland competition.

After competing in an internal competition, the top three students from the college – Jonathan Daniel (Dales Engineering), Craig Boardman (Score) and Scott Lawson were chosen to go forward and compete in the regional competition in Dundee.

This was a particularly proud achievement for Scott who has only been practicing welding since September 2010 when he joined Banff and Buchan College straight from School.

Jonathan Daniel and Craig Boardman were delighted to take first place and second place respectively in the regional competition and will now go on to the National Finals in Fife.

Wullie Forman, Training/Assistant Apprentice Co-Ordinator at Score said: “We wish Craig and Jonathan every success, reaching the final has proven that they already have the necessary skills to be Scotland’s top apprentices.”
