Former SWC Electrical apprentice Daniel Knox, who studied at the Enniskillen Technology and Skills Centre and is employed by GP Electrical & security, emerged victorious at Europe's largest skills competition 'the Euro Skills Olympics' in Gdańsk, Poland in 2023, which he feels wouldn’t have been possible without the apprenticeship route.
Reflecting on his journey, Daniel, who is now a fully qualified Electrician said:
"I have learned so much from this experience, and without a doubt, it has helped me improve in my career as an Electrician. I would like to say a huge thank you to my tutors at the College and my boss, Gary Phair, as well as Team UK, who have been very supportive in my journey to this stage.
"For others seeking to enter the sector, I would encourage them to join the electrical apprenticeship at SWC, as you will not only be earning and learning, but you will have the opportunity to compete in professionally organised and challenging skills competitions that will help you improve your confidence and skill set."
