The talented apprentice, who works at HT Energy in Swainby, North Yorkshire, and studies at Redcar & Cleveland College, has won the regional heat of the UK Copper Board National Apprentice of the Year 2014 competition, in conjunction with HIP! Magazine.
He walked away with top marks after completing a complex pipework task, which showcased his plumbing and heating skills. He was up against 11 apprentices from as far afield as Hull, Grimsby and Newcastle, as well as those from the Tees Valley.

The 19-year-old from Stockton will now go through to the two-day national final in Cheltenham at the end of April.

“I’m really chuffed to have won the regional heat for the third time,” said Harry. “Hopefully, it will be third time lucky. It would be great to win the national final.

“I enjoy taking part in the competition. I don’t get nervous – I just concentrate on what I’m doing, and it seems to work for me. I’m really proud to be representing the North East again this year.”

Keith Smith, Redcar & Cleveland College’s Head of School for Built Environment, said he had every faith in Harry.

“We’re delighted that Harry has won the regional competition for the third year running. He’s a very talented apprentice and deserves to be in the final. We wish him well and know that he will do us proud.”

Howard Tribick, owner of HT Energy, said Harry was improving his skills every year.

He said: “Harry has been with us since he left school and continues to impress us with his commitment and hard work. His enthusiasm to improve and the pride he takes in his work is second to none. We’re delighted he has won the regional heat again.”
