Employee Shines

Employee Tom Lincoln has won a regional competition taking top spot in the joinery category for the south west. Thomas will compete later this month at the NEC Birmingham in the SkillBuild 2019 UK National Final – where he will represent Swindon college and TT Manufacturing. “I’m very excited to reach this level and to be able to represent the college and my workplace on a big platform in this competition,” said Thomas. He is one of eight finalists who will carve it out to be named the winner. If successful Thomas will be awarded a gold medal and get the chance to compete in Singapore 2021. Thomas studied Level 2 in bench joinery at the college while doing his apprenticeship at TT Manufacturing. He said: “Doing an Apprenticeship has helped lead me to this point, it has really driven me in being able to build this skill.”
