As mentioned under the “Awards Programme” the Livery Company operates an active Awards programme in both North and South Wales for secondary schools in deprived areas, on a rolling basis, usually for three years. Once candidates are short listed, in liaison with their school, they are interviewed and the successful students, usually three in number, receive a small financial award. Whilst small in everyday terms, this has an immense impact on the students allowing them to invest in equipment, additional training and events, or specialist technical books.
