ROOFING APPRENTICES in the north west have been rewarded for their achievements with the help of Welsh Slate.
The UK manufacturer of natural slate supplied the North West Roof Training Group with a trophy of circular honed slate to celebrate their Roofing Apprentice of the Year competition at Bolton College.
The winner was Bradley Heffron of P Duckworth Roofing Services of Middleton, Manchester, who finished his NVQ Level 2 ahead of time.
“The slating job he completed was super and we are very grateful to Welsh Slate for their support of the roofing apprenticeship movement,” said group training officer Sue Wharton.
The presentation came at the end of National Apprenticeship Week (4 – 8 March) which was marked by the group with the launch of a new apprentice training facility, the DMR Roofing Academy, run in Wigan by DMR, the independent specialist training provider for the construction industry.
