HIP and SPARKS Apprentice of the Year competition

This year we hosted the South East HIP and SPARKS Apprentice of the Year competition at our Kings Langley campus. A number of plumbing and electrical apprentices from the South East gathered to compete against one another.

Two students represented West Herts College at the event: Robert Doncaster in the SPARKS electrical competition, and James Kiddy-Wallond in the HIP plumbing competition.

The colleges who attended the plumbing event were Buckinghamshire College and Uxbridge College, whilst Bedford College, Highbury College and West Suffolk College came along for the electrical competition.

It was a great day of practical challenges for the apprentices, with Robert and James narrowly missing out on a place in the finals. Both apprentices talked fondly of the experience and how they were grateful to have taken part.
