The awards were Overall Apprentice of the Year which was given to Rachel Lawrie of FLB Group. The Level 3 Post Press award was given to Jake Anderson Hogg of FLB Group. Robby McCann of CCL Label took home the Level 3 Print Administration award, and Jay Findlater of Newsprinters took home the Level 3 Press award.

Commenting on the importance of awards such as these, Garry Richmond, director of Print Scotland says: “Fighting and overcoming the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been at the heart of Scotland’s print businesses over the last 18 months, As essential workers, they have performed superbly.

“We continue to believe that the industry needs to employ more apprentices to sustain Scotland’s print sector by encouraging more apprentices from an increasingly diverse range of backgrounds.”

He adds: “These awards recognise outstanding achievement amongst the young people who represent the next generation of our leaders of Scotland’s print sector.”

Whilst the pandemic meant the usual annual Apprentice Awards weren’t able to go ahead in person, certificates were mailed and presented to winners by their managers and mentors.

Richmond also thanked David McGinlay of Muller Martini and Stephen Paul of Antalis for supplying the prizes.
