Three exceptional students from SWC Omagh were awarded prizes at the recent Institute of Road Transport Engineers (IRTE) awards ceremony at the Transport Training Services NI, Nutts Corner.
Keith Kelly was awarded first place in Northern Ireland in the Level 2 Heavy Vehicle Studies category; Gary Hamill won the Skill Auto Award for First in Northern Ireland in Heavy Vehicle Skills and Marshall Fenton was awarded the Level 5 Award and IRTE Cup for First in Northern Ireland in Level 5 Automotive Management Studies.

Speaking about the students’ success, Declan McGirr, Automotive Management tutor at SWC, said; “The standard across Northern Ireland colleges is excellent so these are superb achievements for Keith, Gary and Marshall. They are also deserved rewards for their hard work and fantastic exam results, which included some very high scores.”
