Carshalton College Electrical Advanced Apprentice, Lewis Barnard, entered the SPARKS National Electrical Apprentice of the Year 2013 and has made it through to the final. The regional heat took place on Thursday 28 February at Acton College with competitors from nine other Colleges.
Celia Matthews, competition organiser said: "After looking at the marks achieved by the students taking part in the heats we found that Lewis's marks were so good that we wanted to give him the chance to have a go at the title. I think the final will be all the more exciting this year!"
Lewis has been given free tools and will have the chance to win £1,000 of Electricfix vouchers at the final, which takes place at Swindon College on the 8th & 9th May.
Electrical Currciulum Manager at Carshalton College, Nigel Powell, said "This is a fantastic achievement for Lewis and we are all so pleased that his hard work and skill has been recognised and he has made it through to the final. This is a great feat for Lewis and we wish him all the best at the final in May."
