Peter Kernan, an 18 year old apprentice with S & S Joinery, has achieved the title of National Young Carpenter of the Year. The award was given by the Institute of Carpenters in London at a ceremony in London earlier this month, which Peter’s friends and family attended.
Peter showed an interest in joinery from an early age, studying at Fearns High School and going on to take a carpentry apprenticeship at Accrington and Rossendale College. He entered the National Awards whilst still at the college, achieving both the regional and national award, much to his surprise. Whilst Peter has always had enthusiasm, high standards and professionalism in his work with local joinery firm S & S Joinery, this new accolade reflects a determination to carve out a successful and long-lived career.
Stephen Hodgson, from S & S Joinery is particularly pleased at with the news of this award as his company has been associated with high standards since it was established in 2002. With over 22 years experience in the joinery trade, S & S Joinery continues to go from strength to strength. Highly trained staff are key to the success of S & S Joinery, who work in partnership with Training 2000, the Northwest’s largest independent work based learning provider.
Peter will continue his apprenticeship with S & S Joinery and plans to specialise in heritage joinery in the near future.
