What the lecturer said: Throughout his year at Cannington George has shown determination, initiative and enthusiasm in all aspects of his studies. In particular George has excelled in developing and honing his practical skills. George has already secured full time work as a climbing arborist when he leaves College.
What the college said: Once again Bridgwater College is delighted to be working with the Royal Forestry Society. Each year we acknowledge the success of all our students during our Awards Ceremony and this year is no exception. It’s incredibly empowering for any student to be awarded a prize as a result of their efforts. This particular prize, a Silky pruning saw has become part of the standard climbing kit for most arborists and will constantly remind George of his success. George will also make great use of his RFS membership and is currently looking to study at Level 3.
