Barking and Dagenham College Student wins HIP Learner of the Year 2024

Posted: Tuesday, April 16th, 2024

Daisy Turner from Barking and Dagenham College won the HIP Learner of the Year 2024, following an intense two-day final on the 11th and 12th of April at the JTL Birmingham Training Centre.

Daisy, upon hearing her name announced, shared her excitement: "I still can't believe it! The prizes and the overall experience have truly been overwhelming."

Zak Rowan from Grimsby Institute earned the runner-up spot. The competition kicked off in January, with Level 2 and 3 plumbing students competing from across six regional locations in England and Wales.

The judges had a challenging task but ultimately narrowed down the impressive entries to seven finalists at the regional heats, before crowning the winner and runner-up at last week’s grand final.

Zoe Tanner, managing director at HIP, commented: "The final was nothing short of spectacular! Each competitor has demonstrated remarkable skill and should be proud of their achievements. We're excited to see what next year brings as the talent this year has indeed set a promising precedent for the future of plumbing."

For over a decade, the HIP competition has been a pivotal platform for showcasing and celebrating emerging talent within the UK plumbing sector, significantly boosting confidence among the nation’s future plumbing experts.
