TWO apprentices were welding their careers in place at a regional competition.

South Tyneside College students were celebrating after winning two of the top prizes at the annual SkillWeld regional finals.

Alistair Brummit won first place in the SkillWeld competition.

The 20-year-old was awarded with a trophy, an iPod, vouchers and a certificate from SkillWeld.

Alistair recently completed his Btec in fabrication and welding at South Tyneside College, and he took on the best trainee welders from colleges across the country in the national final of the BOC Apprentice Welder 2009.

He will now represent Britain at the 2011 Worldskills Welding Event in London.

Alistair, from Bedlington, Northumberland, said: “I was thrilled to win the regional SkillWeld. It means so much to me to be recognised for my work and it gives me the confidence and motivation to push myself further.
