The lucky four will be stepping on site in style when they graduate this year, after being selected as the Scruffs tradespeople of the future.

Rob Smith, apprentice manager at the college, said: “It was hard to choose just four top apprentices before graduation. Everyone has worked so hard, but these guys really stood out as real talent in their individual field. The support of Scruffs means they’ll be starting professional life on the right foot”

Chris Mellor-Dolman, from Scruffs added: “It’s tough for tradesmen and tradeswomen when they start out – good quality gear is a great investment, but it can be expensive to kit yourself out from scratch.

“The apprentices selected have shown that they are eager to get a foot on the ladder and are #SCRUFFSENOUGH for anything.

“They’re the future, and we’re keen to help them on their way now that they have graduated.”
