TICA’s Level 3 Apprentice Award for 2017

TICA’s first ever Level 3 Apprentice Award goes to Derek Rogers.

Phil Lancaster of SSAB/Aluzinc presented the award at this year’s awards ceremony.

TICA’s Marion Marsland said “It was a pleasure to present our first ever Level 3 Apprentice Award to Derek Rogers of Actavo. Our Level 3 certificate is focused on sheet metal fabrication, so it was fitting that the award was generously sponsored by SSAB”
Derek, an employee of TICA members Actavo, based on the Grangemouth site in Scotland, was considered by centre staff to be an outstanding level 3 candidate with excellent fabrication and pattern development skills.
“SSAB/Aluzinc will continue to sponsor this award in the coming years” said Phil, “the skills training that TICA provide is so important for the industry, I was really impressed with the fabrication skills of students I met during a recent visit to TICA’s training facility in Darlington”

“We are currently looking into ways in which we can provide further support to TICA students, especially with their practical skills in fabrication” added David Williams – (Managing Director of SSAB Swedish Steel Ltd)
