UK: The IoR Scottish Branch is seeking nominations for its annual Apprentice of the Year and Kooltech awards.
The Apprentice of the Year Award is open to apprentices employed and working within Scotland. There is no age limit for the award and although it is envisaged that candidates would normally be fourth year apprentices, consideration will be given to any apprentices who are at a sufficiently advanced stage of a relevant refrigeration apprenticeship.
The winning apprentice will receive a cash prize of £300, a refrigeration text book and a £200 voucher for the purchase of tools. The Institute of Refrigeration is also offering a year’s subscription to its Service Engineers Section.
The Kooltech Award recognises the person who has made the most outstanding contribution to the Scottish refrigeration industry over the past few years. This may be in the field of academic study, research, manufacturing or contracting.
This award takes the form of a cash payment plus a medal that is held by the recipient for one year.
Closing date for nominations is Monday 9 October. Further information and nomination form here.
The awards will be presented at the Scottish Branch Dinner being held on Thursday 16 November.
