NASC Apprentice of the Year Award 2014
NASC are proud to announce the launch of the NASC Apprentice of the Year Award, which is to be sponsored by both CITB and CISRS.
The award is aimed at individuals who are currently directly employed with an NASC Member company and are either part way through a formal scaffolding apprenticeship with an approved CISRS provider or alternatively have successfully completed the apprenticeship programme in 2014.
The successful candidate must be conscientious, have shown a willingness to learn and develop skills and have gone above and beyond the call of duty whilst working their way through the qualification. The judges would like to see evidence of someone who through hard work, personal development and a commitment to the industry would be viewed as a shining example to others looking to enter the scaffolding sector.
Nominations must be received by Friday November 7th 2014. The winning apprentice will receive a trophy and a cash prize of £500, while the apprentice’s employer will also receive a trophy and £500 to be spent on CISRS training with an approved provider.
The winner will be announced at the NASC AGM Friday 21st November 2014, in Manchester, with the presentation of the award to take place at the workplace of the winner at a mutually convenient date.
Dave Mosley, NASC Director of Training and CISRS Scheme Manager said, “We would like to thank CITB for their kind offer to support the establishment of an NASC Apprentice of the Year Award. The membership have always been great supporters of Scaffolding Apprenticeships and it is fitting that we should we should have some formal recognition for candidates that excel in this area.”
Those wishing to enter the NASC Apprentice of the Year 2014 Award should go to the CISRS section in the member’s area on the NASC website.
