Following two days of extremely tough competition, Sebastian claimed an impressive second place in a competition that displayed an exceptionally high standard of work from plumbing apprentices from across the country.

Graham Hawkins, Associate Lecturer in Plumbing at Bridgwater College said,

“We are very proud of Sebastian, he did an outstanding job of representing the College. The high quality work he produced, that really impressed the judges, leaves me in no doubt that Sebastian has a bright future ahead of him in the industry and will be very successful when he completes his course next year.”
