Scruffs Workwear has kicked off its partnership with West Nottinghamshire College to sponsor a ‘student of the year’ award across each of its seven trade courses.

The successful student from each course will be announced at the college’s celebration day on 7 June, and presented with a full set of workwear clothing.

Julian Walden from West Nottinghamshire College, said: “All of our apprentices have been working extremely hard this year and it is going to be tough to reward just one student across each course. The support from Scruffs is a brilliant incentive for the students to continue their hard work and will enable them to start their professional life on the right foot.”

Chris Mellor-Dolman, from Scruffs said: “It’s important that we support the upcoming trade talent right at the start of their career journey. We understand how difficult it can be to get started in business, but we can help make sure that these talented apprentices are able to look professional for their customers, investing in gear that will technically live up to their needs while living up to the job.”
