SLPTG Apprentice Awards 2020 – winners revealed!

The Steeplejack and Lightning Protection Group (SLPTG) recently held its annual Apprentice Awards, which celebrate apprenticeships within the Steeplejack and Lightning Protection industries. This year the awards were held at DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Piccadilly on Thursday 5 March.

Apprentices who demonstrated outstanding individual achievement throughout their training were recognised with the following awards:

  • Best Lightning Conductor Engineer Apprentice A.W. Elliott Award – Joe Wright, Omega Red Group
  • Best Steeplejack Apprentice Ted Fuller Award – Curtis Mulholland, Stone Technical Services

The Apprentice Awards allow SLPTG to showcase their continued support and commitment to the Lightning Protection and Specialist Access sector as a dedicated training group. The awards ceremony also allowed employers to join together in demonstrating their support for new talent within the sector, share knowledge of best practice and meet other professionals who also have an interest in the industry.

This year, SLPTG was delighted to have multi-award winning, stand-up comedian, Matt Richardson, as the host of the evening. Matt has made TV appearances on shows such as Celebrity Juice and the Xtra Factor, and was received positively by guests at the event.

SLPTG Chairman, Paul Cripps said:

“I am delighted to see so many apprentices graduate this year, and to such a high standard. Apprenticeships are vital to our sector, and as a Training Group we must continue to show our support to a pathway that brings skilled employees into our specialist workforce.”
