Trainee from College of North West London sccops skillFRIDGE title

A budding refrigerator engineer kept his cool to see off more than 100 competitors during a national test of skill. Shaun Bann, 24, who studies at the College of North West London emerged victorious from the SkillFRIDGE event, which saw hopeful engineers put their talents to the test.

More than 150 trainees were faced with a testing installation of a refrigeration system and Mr Bann snapped up the top prize at the event.

Mr Bann, who is studying for a level three certificate in Engineering Technology at the college campus in Dudden Hill Lane, Willesden, spoke of his delight at picking up the award.

He said: “I was amazed to hear my name read out as the winner. I’d like to thank all at Godfrey & Lappage Services (his employers) and the College of North West London for their support.

“I hope this can inspire more young people as I didn’t succeed in school but have worked hard to be practically skilled.”
