Big news for The Weldability Sif Foundation, with the charity grabbing a prestigious Judges’ Award at The Welding World Awards 2018. The Foundation was honoured with The Welding World Award on the big night, a prized specially added by Judges “to recognise the forward thinking to help create a Pathway for the future of Welding and Engineering.”
Commenting on the Foundation’s invaluable work, the Judges noted how it has “successfully created 36 welder training studios around the UK and developed some interesting e-learning and virtual welding tools to assist with accelerated learning within the welding industry. With over 12,000 training certificates issued via EAL to date, The Weldability Sif Foundation have clearly made a difference to our industry.”
The Welding World Awards themselves are impartial, independent awards that can be won by any company operating in the welding industry, and a unique highlight in the welding industry calendar.

The award was collected by the Foundation’s Training Portfolio Manager Andy Thomas. Commenting on the awards, Andy Thomas said “It’s an honour to be recognised at an event like this. All the hard work has paid off, and we at the Foundation are grateful for the extra boost as we keep training Britain’s next generation of welders.”
