Apprentice Installer Awards

The BSIA's Apprentice Installer Awards recognise the 'new blood' of the industry as apprentice installers are rewarded for their talent and customer service. Presented at the BSIA's Annual Luncheon, held at the Grand Connaught Rooms near Covent Garden in July, the awards are open to apprentice installers from security companies certified for their activities by a UKAS accredited certification body. Apprentices are eligible if they are involved in the installation of alarms, access control, or CCTV. The scheme is designed for third year and particularly outstanding second year apprentices. Individuals can also be nominated by the college where they are studying.

2017's awards were kindly sponsored by:

Corrie Stewart, 21, of Connelly Security Systems


The overall winner of 2017's Apprentice Installer Awards is Corrie Stewart, 21, a student from New College Lanarkshire, who is in the third year of her apprenticeship with Connelly Security Systems Ltd. Corrie has been impressing her peers and tutors at every level of her apprenticeship, being nominated for the award for her attention to details and overall skillset.

Nominating Corrie for the 2017 Apprentice Installer Awards, David Scott, Curriculum and Quality Leader at New College Lanarkshire, remarked that Corrie performed "well beyond her years in terms of understanding systems and system circuitry."

Corrie has excelled in both theory and practical elements of her apprenticeship, completing 12 units of her qualification with a 90% pass mark or more. Commenting on her award, Corrie said: "I am incredibly proud to have won this award - it feels so surreal! I've absolutely loved my apprenticeship with New College Lanarkshire and CSS. It's been hard work but my determination has paid off and I can't wait to see where it takes me next." 

She added: "The apprenticeship has given me an opportunity to enhance my skills, gain valuable experience and work with those who have vast experience in the industry. The programme offers a varied career that requires skills and problem-solving and you face different challenges every day. I'm really proud of my success in such a male-dominated industry, but I can already see it changing and am delighted to hear that there's another female apprentice in her first year now."
