The company’s C.K Bright Sparks programme was established to promote vocational education in order to develop bright ‘sparkies’ of the future. Now providing 60 colleges and universities across the UK with bursaries and a selection of tools for training use, the programme continues to support the development of industry professionals.
Adrian, 22, from Dungiven, trained as an electrician at North West Regional College, Northern Ireland, which benefits from the C.K Bright Sparks programme. Showing great potential and growth over the course of his training, Adrian was selected to compete for a place in Squad and Team UK after excelling in the WorldSkills UK Skills Competitions.
The WorldSkills Competition is the largest vocational, education and skills excellence event in the world. As part of Team UK, Adrian and his 40 teammates – all aged between 18 and 25 – will demonstrate technical abilities both individually and collectively, to execute specific tasks for which they study and will perform in the future.
Carl Kammerling’s quality tool brand, C.K tools is providing all the tools required for Adrian to participate in the electrical installation section of the competition, which will take place in August, 2015.
Adrian comments: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for me to showcase what I have learned so far at college. I am very grateful for the generous support of Carl Kammerling International, and look forward to using the specialist tools they are providing for me to perform to the best of my abilities in São Paulo this summer.’
Paul Fallon, marketing manager at C.K tools said: ‘This is a fantastic example of the impact our Bright Sparks scheme has on young electricians in training, and we wish Adrian and his fellow teammates the best of luck.’
