Josh Peek

Josh achieved a Bronze medal in welding at the World Skills 2014 National Finals at the NEC Birmingham – acknowledging him as the 3rd best welder in the country!

Josh’s tutor Mark Shanks was especially proud of his young student explaining that “he was the youngest welder there as most competitors are in their final year, but Josh has proved he has a real talent”.

Josh is delighted with the outcome of the competition and will be adding his success to his portfolio while he completes his Advanced Apprenticeship in Welding and Fabrication.
