A team of engineering Apprentices from Doncaster College demonstrated their outstanding level of knowledge and practical skills to achieve second place in the inaugural Great British Weld-off competition.
Jack Cowell, Matthew Edwards, Robert Bristow and Lewis Marshall made up the team of fabrication and welding Apprentices studying the Level 3 City and Guilds 2850 Diploma in Engineering at Doncaster College who entered the national competition. The team attended a full day of demanding tasks that included a written theory paper, four very challenging practical welding tests and a creative section in which they produced an iconic sculpture of a land rover.
Morris Site Machinery, and UK’s the leading supplier of hire equipment, Speedy, and global manufacturer of welding equipment, Kemppi sponsored the competition. It took place on Wednesday 26 February 2014 at Morris Site Machinery, Wolverhampton.
The College has worked closely with the Apprentice’s employers at Advanced Diesel Engineering LTD, Allen Fabrications, MSI Forks and Sismatico, who supported the team allowing additional time off work to attend planning and practical activities in preparation for the event.
Colin Phelps, Assistant Director of the Academy of Advanced Technologies at Doncaster College, said, ‘We would like to thank all concerned for their individual and team efforts and congratulate the students on their achievement in the competition.’
After battling through the three tasks and finishing second the students received a Kemppi Inverter Power Source, worth £670 and a trophy.
