The Stuart Wilkie Memorial Trophy (presented each year by the Wilkie family in memory of their son Stuart who was a motor vehicle student at Borders College) was awarded to Robbie in recognition of his dedication, drive and commitment during his time at College. Borders College is also proud to name Robbie as the Scottish Motor Trade Association Apprentice of the Year.

Robbie first attended Borders College in September 2015 as a first year apprentice employed by Thomas B Oliver Ltd in Denholm.

During his three years studying for the City & Guilds Level 2 and 3 Modern Apprentice awards, Robbie’s work was to a very high standard, achieving credits and many distinctions along the way, resulting in him being awarded Student of the Year in each of these 3 years.

As Robbie was unable to attend the graduation ceremony in September, Borders College Vice Principal - Curriculum and Student Services, Heather Anderson, recently visited Robbie at his workplace to present him with his awards.

Congratulations, Robbie, from all at Borders College.
