Webtec continues to support the young engineers of the future

This Year’s Recipient of the Roy Cuthbert Scholarship Announced



The Roy Cuthbert Scholarship has been awarded to Thomas Chaplin. The award, which was named after Webtec’s founder, a passionate engineer and entrepreneur who passed away in 2013, is part of the wider UK Arkwright Engineering Scholarship Scheme. Webtec is proud to be a supporter of this prestigious national programme which has been providing scholarships to students since 1991.

Webtec recognises the importance of encouraging young talent into engineering and in addition to the Arkwright Scholarships the company also actively supports other programmes including the Primary Engineer® Leaders Award and the Engineering Education Scheme (EES).

The highly respected Arkwright Engineering Scholarship is designed to inspire and equip the next generation of UK engineering talent. This year, the programme awarded 300 esteemed scholarships to bright and aspiring 16-year-old students from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, with 45 per cent of these presented to female students and 38 per cent to young people from non-selective state schools.


“We are passionate to support the next generation of engineers and the Arkwright Scholarship offers a great opportunity to help talented students achieve their full potential.  We would like to congratulate Thomas on being awarded the Roy Cuthbert Scholarship and wish him all the very best in his future career” commented Martin Cuthbert, Webtec’s Managing Director.

Now heading into its 30th year, the Scholarship provides young people in the UK with a fully sponsored programme of hands-on experience, professional mentorship and careers guidance throughout their A-levels and Scottish Higher qualifications. 

The Arkwright Engineering Scholarship 2021 Programme is now open to all Year 11 students in England and Wales, S4 students in Scotland and Year 12 students in Northern Ireland.
