Truro and Penwith College carpentry apprentice Matthew has been crowned ‘Group Apprentice of the Year’ by a national construction company. His employer awarded him the prestigious title beating all the other Wain Homes apprentices from across the country.

 

Matthew’s success and ability to carve out a successful career in Carpentry came as no surprise to his tutor Frank Axon. Commenting on the award he said:

“Matthew impressed me right from the start with his attitude, willingness to learn and commitment to both attendance and punctuality. He is very pleasant and a pleasure to teach. His work is first rate and is always open to feedback to improve his techniques and process. His theory work is neatly presented, and focus is excellent. Matthew is on my list to be one of the first to take his End Point Assessment (EPA) and I am confident he will achieve top marks.”
