Cirencester Engineer Wins City & Guilds Medal for Excellence

May 12, 2015

George Wallace an Agricultural Engineer, based at our Cirencester depot,  who was a student at Wiltshire College Lackham for the last 3 years (left July 2014), has received a City and Guilds Medal for Excellence at a ceremony on the SS Great Britain for his remarkable work and achievement while at the College.

George Wallace

George was an apprentice Agricultural Machinery mechanic studying Level 2 and (in his 3rd year) Level 3 Diploma in Work-based Land-based Engineering Operations (Agriculture).  His portfolio was of such a high standard that it was mentioned by Wynn Davies the C & G Quality Advisor for this area as worthy of an award.

George’s practical work at College and in the workplace was also of such a high standard that it was note-worthy but George being humble by nature, has never became pretentious regarding his successes.

Ian Marsh, the Programme Leader for the Agricultural Apprentices put George forward for the City and Guild Medal for Excellence last September and George was chosen by C & G for his outstanding work and attitude to learning.

The logistics of being chosen for this award are remarkable, we were told at the ceremony that 35 of these awards were presented to over-seas students this year and the other 69 presented to students from the United Kingdom. In that over two million C & G awards were gained last year by students worldwide shows the true value of George’s achievement! He is one in 19,000!!
