APPRENTICES from Kerry ETB Training Centre in Monavalley have delivered their ‘Generation Apprenticeship’ competition entry to the National College of Ireland, Dublin ahead of judging next month.

In an open competition, sponsored by ESB and the Construction Industry Federation, teams of apprentices were invited to use their skills to reproduce large scale 3D versions of the Generation Apprenticeship “A” brand.

The Kerry entry.

Kerry’s magnificent piece crafted in cut stone and solid wood on a structural steel base was produced by apprentice teams from 3 separate disciplines – Stone Cutting & Masonry, Fitting and Carpentry in collaboration with sponsors Quilter Stonework, Irish Defence Forces, John Sweeney & Son Building Contractors and OPW Killarney. The Kerry ETB team included instructors Tom Little (Stone Cutting and Masonry), Tom Cronin (Fitting), Mike Horgan and John O’Keeffe (Carpentry) and Assistant Manager Christy Enright from Kerry ETB Training Centre in Tralee.

All Generation Apprenticeship entries are now on display at the National College of Ireland where they will be judged by an independent panel later this month. The winning entry will be announced at an awards ceremony in May ahead of being established as a permanent display during the Summer.
