Joseph, 20, who studies at NCC Hackney campus and is employed by McLoughlin Decorating Limited, received his award at a glittering presentation evening involving trade companies from across London and Essex.
The Master Builder Awards is held each year to celebrate outstanding tradespeople as well as the best building projects which have been delivered by Master Builder companies.
Joseph, along with other winners on the night, will now go through to the national awards being hosted by TV personality Nick Knowles, at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, on 22 September.
His manager said: “Joseph’s desire to succeed sets him apart as a disciplined and capable individual. He is a valued member of McLoughlin Decorating’s Health and Safety Committee, as well as being an Apprenticeship Champion, a role which sees him mentor new apprentices, giving them support and encouragement and leading by very fine example.”
