eMAc competition rewards apprentices

Oct 2017 Latest News | Comments Off on eMAc competition rewards apprentices

The electrotechnical Modern Apprenticeship competition (eMAc), organised and run by the Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT), aims to recognise the achievements of Scotland’s apprentices as well as demonstrate the level of skill and expertise that will be gained through an apprenticeship.

This year’s competition saw third stage, third year apprentices from all over Scotland compete for the top spot. All apprentices and their employers were presented with a framed certificate to recognise their achievement in reaching the final of this Scottish competition.

The top three apprentices were:

  • Gold medal winner – Ruaraidh MacCormick of Northern Security Alarms, Inverness, who attended Inverness College UHI.
  • Silver medal winner – Stephen Berry of Electrical Solutions Network Ltd, Ayr, who attended Ayrshire College, Ayr Campus.
  • Bronze medal winner – Darren Charles of Smart Electrics Contractors Ltd, Burntisland, who attended Fife College, Stenton Campus.


  • The top apprentices from across the UK will be invited to go forward and compete in the UK skills competition final being organised by WorldSkills UK. The event is taking place on 16-18 November at the Birmingham NEC.

    The winner of the UK final may also have a chance to join the UK team at the WorldSkills competition, competing against other electrotechnical engineers from across the world.
