Together Housing apprentice named Apprentice of the Year!

Together Housing roofing apprentice, Ben Page, has been named the Apprentice of the Year 2020 after competing at the North West Roof Training Group Apprentice of the Year competition.

Ben Page, 33, currently works at Together Housing as a Labouring Technician and is working towards his level 2 diploma in Roofing.

The award is the result of a collaboration between Bolton College’s roofing department and the North West Roof Training Group which is a non-profit organisation that provides training for roofing contractors throughout the North West. Ben took part in the competition after being put forward by the college for his performance in class.

Each apprentice that competed had to complete a piece of roofing. This included a lead and slate valley with bedded verge, bedded hip and abutment wall.

Ben was named Apprentice of the Year after impressing judges with his accurate and precise work.

Ben said: “I felt really proud when I won. I only started the course in October and was going against apprentices in their second year of the course. 

“Once I have finished the course, I would like to apply my new skills to my day to day work and maybe move up to a roofing technician role in the future!”
