SummitSkills’ development manager Trevor Hill has been awarded a Master’s Certificate by The Worshipful Company of Lightmongers for his years of service to the electrotechnical industry.
Trevor received his award from Sheriff of the City of London Nigel Pullman at a presentation at the Tallow Chandlers’ Hall on Tuesday 5th February.
While his current role involves developing National Occupational Standards, qualifications and apprenticeship frameworks at SummitSkills, the sector skills council for building services engineering, Trevor began his career in electrical contracting as an apprentice and then moved into the printing engineering side of the electrotechnical industry. He then changed his career to become involved in vocational education and training as a FE college lecturer and then as a head of department.
Trevor was described in the awards ceremony as “a person of high integrity” who is well known within the electrotechnical training sector for “maintaining and robustly defending the industry’s training standards.”
Keith Marshall OBE, chief executive of SummitSkills, said: “Those of us ‘in the know’ are well aware of Trevor’s contribution to the sector over many years, but most is not in the spotlight. It is really pleasing to see Trevor’s work recognised in this way and I congratulate him.”’
Accepting the award, Trevor said: “It was a complete surprise and a real honour to receive this recognition. My career has provided me with a range of opportunities and chances to develop and apply my skills, for the benefit of the industry and those individuals entering and working in the industry.”
