The CIPHE announced the winners of its annual Apprentice Awards at a ceremony held at PHEX Chelsea last week.

CIPHE Membership Director, Tim Sainty, announced the winners and National President, Geoff Westall, was on hand to give out the prizes, which included £500 in prize money, a trophy, a copy of the CIPHE Plumbing Engineering Services Design Guide and gift vouchers from Ridgid Tools and Screwfix.

The judges were impressed with the high quality of the projects submitted, with apprentices regularly seen going above and beyond in their work.

The full list of winners was:

  • Heating - Daniel Martins, Briggs & Forrester

  • Plumbing - James Boyle, M. G. Plumbing

  • Vulnerability - Robbie McNeil, Lambert Contracts

Kevin Wellman, Chief Executive Officer of the CIPHE, said: “Congratulations to all of our three well deserved winners. The level of dedication and commitment shown by these apprentices is outstanding.

"The professionalism shown by those just starting out in their careers, not only shines a light on all that is good within apprenticeships and training, but also fills us at the CIPHE with great expectations on what lies ahead with the new Trailblazer Apprenticeships.”
