Stromsholm Apprentice Club News - March

Well done to all those who gained their Worshipful Company of Farriers Diploma certificates at the ceremony at The Honorable Artillery Company in London in December. It is always an exciting occasion; the culmination of the end of the apprenticeship and the beginning of a new chapter as your careers begin in earnest. A special well done to Stromsholm Apprentice Club member Craig Taylor who gained a Distinction grade in his overall exam result, and also picked up the prize for the highest mark in his exam paper.


The Apprentice College Block Award


The College Block Award was introduced to highlight those apprentices that have enjoyed a particularly successful college attendance. The nominations can be made by tutors for overall performance or commitment to work or for overcoming a difficulty or to highlight a particular achievement. It is always heartening to receive these awards and, when we share the news on our Facebook page, it is so good to hear all the positive comments from friends and family of those who have been nominated for the award. The winners receive a Stromsholm voucher and certificate. In this issue we congratulate -  


Myerscough College

Group 41L Emma Burns (Mr W Moore Dip WCF). Emma has been nominated as she “has struggled with the practical side of her apprenticeship but through her continued hard work and dedication she has made significant improvement since her last block and become a confident competent shoemaker.  Emma should be highly commended for the progress she has made.”


Warwickshire College

Group 42L Kendall Norris (ATF Laurence Ridgeway) “for outstanding theory work”
