Newcastle College and Hodgson Sayers apprentice Jordan Condren has been invited to the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers Craft Awards Luncheon, following his recent success at WorldSkills UK.

Jordan, who received a gold medal in roof slating and tiling at the national competition in November, will be attending the event in London as a guest prize-winner. He will receive an additional silver medal and a cheque for £750.

The invite is also extended to Alan Bessford, programme leader in roofing and Jordan’s tutor throughout his preparation for SkillBuild and WorldSkills UK.

Last year Jordan was also a finalist in BMI’s apprentice of the year competition.
