Lisburn sparky trainee makes it to Screwfix Trade Apprentice final

Posted: Thursday, April 18th, 2024

From over 1,800 initial applications, just ten apprentices have made the grade and are heading to the two-day event in London next month, Northern Ireland World reported.

As well as competing for this prestigious award, which aims to highlight the hard work and dedication of trade apprentices across the UK and Ireland, Jindara Scott, 22, is focused on becoming a professional electrician.

Currently studying Electrical Installation at South Eastern Regional College in Lisburn, she hopes to impress a judging panel of industry experts for a chance to be named the winner at the event on May 3.

Jindara was shortlisted for demonstrating her passion, dedication, and ambition for her chosen trade, which shone through during the semi-finals.

She said: “I’m a very determined person, in fact when I was younger, I held a national record in weightlifting.

“Even though I’m only in the first year of my apprenticeship, my sights are firmly set on having my own company with a reputation for high standards and fostering a culture of positivity and inclusion.”
