We will soon be launching the 2024 competition. Watch this space.
The Scottish Plumbing Apprentice of the Year is a college-based practical application competition. It challenges apprentices to compete in two traditional material categories, Copper and Lead, with a new Renewable Category launched in 2023 to recognise the growing importance of these technologies to the plumbing and heating profession.
Backed by industry, academia and many high-profile plumbing and supply chain companies, the competition aims to develop the skills and abilities of those currently undertaking plumbing apprenticeships in Scotland.
On the day of the competition, the apprentices are given a project to complete within 3.5 hours. All competing apprentices get the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge, technical skills, project and time management, accuracy and professionalism while having to meet a strict deadline.
At the end of the assigned competition, an expert panel of judges decides the third, second and first-place category winners.
The winner of each category is awarded the prestigious title of Scottish Plumbing Apprentice of the Year for their respective class.
