A carpentry and joinery student has built himself a real success story.

Glen Campbell (pictured), from Marton, won the Little Sheffield Trophy for the Most Outstanding Carpentry and Joinery Apprentice at the annual Construction Awards.

The 39-year-old returned to education as an adult, to boost his skills and career prospects at Blackburn College.

And after impressing his company, EMCOR Facilities Services, he was nominated for the award by bosses, who said he always gave 100 per cent.

Mr Campbell, of Skelwith Road, said: “I’ve enjoyed every single aspect of my apprenticeship, which has helped me build confidence, and after doing lots of jobs in my lifetime, I’m now feeling settled.

Glen was one of 28 students presented with trophies and certificates in the awards, sponsored by Eric Wright Construction, B.E.S. Plumbing and Gas Supplies, Best Electrical, Electric Center, Jewson Limited, James Gibson Ironmongers Ltd and Mercer and Sons Ltd.
