Nathan Pawsey, Level 3 Apprentice, takes home a win!

Nathan Pawsey, a Cambridge Regional College (CRC) Level 3 Electrical Installations Apprentice from Ely, has won the SPARKS magazine National Competition for Electrical Installation Learner of the Year!

For over a decade, the SPARKS competition has given young electricians the opportunity to highlight their skills, celebrating the up-and-coming talent across the UK, and instilling confidence in the next generation of the electrical industry.


The first stage of the competition was a regional one-day event in Birmingham in March 2023 which Nathan won. Level 2 and 3 electrical students competed across six regional locations in England and Wales, but Nathan, who studied at Cambridge Regional College (CRC), was unbeatable!

Nathan said: “I am so proud of this achievement. I could not have imagined I’d come this far! My experience at Cambridge Regional College, as an electrical apprentice, has helped me enjoy learning whilst gaining invaluable experience with my employer. Thank you to all those who helped me reach this level of professional success, I feel very honoured to have been given the award by SPARKS magazine and I look forward to what lies ahead for me.”
