10th June 2019
The stage is set! Thomas, 18, studies carpentry and is amongst just 10 finalists selected in this year’s Screwfix Trade Apprentice competition. He will now battle it out at the national final, competing for the chance to be crowned Screwfix Trade Apprentice 2019 and win a career boosting £10,000 trade bundle.
Thomas will head to central London along with the other finalists to meet with a panel of judges from Screwfix and key trade bodies. The winner will take home a fantastic £10,000 trade bundle including a brand new Macbook Air and accessories, Google Home, £5,000 worth of Screwfix products and most importantly, £3,000 funding for future training and courses.
“To win the competition would be such an achievement. To be named Screwfix’s number one Trade Apprentice and win the prize money would allow me to build a workshop in my garden to further develop bespoke joinery skills. I am a huge admirer of Sashimono, a traditional Japanese craft of wooden furniture where pieces are put together without the use of nails or any other holding materials. It would be a dream to learn Sashimono first hand in Japan.”
An already great achievement so far, but Thomas is receiving plenty of support to go all the way to the top.
