At Sashes of Distinction with over 30 years experience in the Glass & Glazing industry, we are extremely proud of Arron Clegg who at 19 and a co-director of the company has, through a significant amount of dedication, commitment, drive and hard work, successfully been selected as a finalist in the Apprentice Of The Year at the prestigious G10 Awards. The award ceremony is being held in London at the Wembley Stadium in December.

This is a highly prestigious accolade for Arron who started out along with numerous other apprentices and through his outstanding ability and industry knowledge has progressed so far.  Although Arron is relatively young he has achieved far more than many who are years his senior and I firmly believe he is destined to go far.

Arron ‘worked’ with his father from the tender age of six and continuing to show an aptitude in practical matters as well as the theory embarked on Construction and the Built Environment skills courses at his school gaining high grades and in time joined his father who was Head of Installations for Safestyle UK, one of the largest national double glazing companies.

Here he gained further acknowledgements for his outstanding abilities and was subsequently accepted onto a specialist installation support team within the company and  then his team went on to win Support team of the year 2008 at the National Installation Awards. Following this Arron completed his NVQ, left the company to start his own business in 2009 and opened his first showroom in July 2010 now employing a Showroom Manager, fellow Installers and Sales Director.

Arron started a formal apprenticeship early in 2010 with the Fenestration College supported by North Lancs Training Group and is already looking at other routes to progress his training once he has completed his apprenticeship.

I must say using a quote from Nelson Mandela “ It is easier to educate a man when he wants to learn!”

It is safe to say this is a young man with the world at his feet and is destined to go far… watch this space as you will no doubt be hearing much more of Arron Clegg in the future.
