The event, which takes place this evening at London's Park Lane Hilton Hotel, see's all ten finalists come together for the announcement of the 2013 winner. The Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Magazine National Student of the Year Award, which runs concurrently with the National Cooling Awards, recognises the achievements of the best up-and-coming engineers and celebrates their contribution to the industry.
The event opens with a drink's reception for all ten finalists, to celebrate their achievement in making it through to the grand final, after which Graeme Maidment, President of the Institute of Refrigeration, will make a keynote speech to the audience, followed by a photo call for the finalists.
Steven, along with the other finalists will then join the main Cooling Industry Awards party for dinner, followed by the Awards themselves, culminating in the announcement of the 2013 National Student of the Year winner, together with second and third place.
This year has been a great year for Steven, as he has also represented the United Kingdom in the WorldSkills final in Leipzig, Germany. To find out how Steven got on, please click here.
We are delighted to have been recognised by The Times Education Awards for the support we provide to students who need to re-sit their GCSEs after leaving school. The excellent results our students achieved last summer include more than twice the national average gaining a maths GCSE, testament to the dedicated team of teachers who use innovative approaches and techniques to inspire our learners.
