Huge congratulations to our champion apprentice, Kodie Higgins, for winning Gold in the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Milling category at Skills Competition Wales.

Kodie was placed in the role of the CNC machinist, and asked to use computerised controls and multi-point cutting tools to produce a custom-designed part or product in under 7 hours.

His part's conformity to the drawing, its surface finish, its main and secondary dimensions, and his use of material clinched the competition for him.

We're all so proud of him, well done Kodie!
