Alex Seaton, ENGIE Fabricom’s CAD Designer has been shortlisted along with 2 other candidates for the Concom Apprentice of the Year Award 2017 which is being held on Thursday 4th May at the Hallmark Hotel, North Ferriby.

On submission for the award, Alex was challenged to write an article outlining her apprenticeship to date, her academic successes, skills attained, on the job successes, understanding of the industry and other achievements relevant to her performance.

All applications were then reviewed and we are pleased to announce that Alex along with 2 other candidates have been shortlisted.

On acknowledgement of shortlisting, Alex now has to put together a 5-10 minute presentation describing her understanding of Competency, what it means to her, her employer and the local industry. This is to be presented in front of the forum panel at CATCH in April.  The finalists have been invited to the HCF Annual Dinner where the awards will be presented in May.

Concom, the Humber Bank Contractor Competency Forum, based at the Stallingborough CATCH facility was originally formed in 1999 by a group of collaborating clients and contractors to establish and develop high standards of competency for companies and their employees working on the Humber Bank process industry sites.

The Concom apprentice awards are open to any discipline with any NVQ awarding body and any training provider; the broad inclusion of disciplines and competition within the industry increases the difficulty in becoming shortlisted for this prestigious award.
