Alfie Hodges - Plumbing & Heating Apprentice

Alfie Hodges from Whaley Bridge was a finalist for the Screwfix Apprentice of the Year after capturing the attention of trade tools company having helped to build a bespoke bathroom for a disabled boy whilst on placement. His talents didn't go unnoticed by College lecturers and employers.

He says:

“I was so excited to be through to the finals of the Awards, to be recognised for something I love doing is such a great feeling.

Having shadowed a local plumber in the school holidays one year, which helped me secure my apprenticeship, my eyes opened to a career as a plumber and I’ve never looked back. To see the impact my work has on people’s day-to-day lives, as well as completing a job to the best of my ability is such a fantastic feeling".
