risual are really proud to announce that Max Rochefort-Shugar, a former risual apprentice, has won ‘Welsh Apprentice of the Year’, in manufacturing!

Max is studying in his second year at Swansea University, studying BSc (Hons) Applied Software Engineering Degree. He joined his current place of work SONY in 2017 on a risual apprenticeship scheme and has since progressed onto the Applied Software Engineering Degree Apprenticeship with Swansea University.

On November 7th Max attended the 2019 Make UK Manufacturing Awards in Cardiff, and there he was awarded the Apprentice of the Year Award.

A big congratulations to Max, and to SONY.
