Arran Smith is the fourth nominee for the Apprentice of the Year Award.

Arran said ‘I was delighted to find out I was nominated for Apprentice of the year especially after my brother winning it two years ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and thank Gowrie for putting my through this.’

Beth Robinson of Gowrie Contracts said “We were delighted to welcome Arran Smith to the Gowrie Contracts Team in May 2018. Since then he has fitted in well and become a real asset to the company. Well-liked by the team, Arran is hardworking and always eager to learn and develop. It is no secret that this nomination means a lot to him, mainly because wants to match his brother in winning the Apprentice of the Year Award; as a keen footballer his competitive streak has really kicked in!! All the Gowrie Contracts Team have their fingers crossed and wish him luck for the Awards Night in June.”

Graham Warren ACAD Manager “Arran and the other nominees represent the future of our industry and it’s fantastic to see such a great group of individuals coming through the SAP once again.  ACAD launched the Specialist Apprentice Programme in 2015 with the new SAP following in April 2018.  With regular starts throughout the year it provides a free route to NVQ L2 competence for your new and inexperienced operatives so it’s clear why so many Licence holders are turning to the SAP and ACAD.”

Good Luck!
