Young apprentice Archie Dalton is engineering a brighter career after winning a prestigious Institution of Civil Engineers Quest Technician Plus Scholarship – worth up to £1,000.
The talented youngster, who works at the Leeds office, where he provides civil engineering services, tender support and planning design to house builders across Leeds and Yorkshire, is set to use the cash boost to fund his professional studies at Leeds College of Building.
He won the scholarship after impressing the engineering trade body with his leadership and team skills, personal qualities, initiative and determination.
Considered highly prestigious, only a handful of technician students are awarded the scholarship each year before going onto to pursue engineering careers.
Managing director Ross Oakley, said the firm is committed to investing in young engineering talent to secure the quality of services provided to customers: “Archie has done very well to win a Quest scholarship, which is a sign of engineering excellence. He has been recognised for his abilities and potential, and we very much look forward to seeing him go on to fulfil a bright and successful future with RWO.”
