More than 500 young students and apprentices took part in finals in over 60 disciplines held at seven venues across the UK earlier this month.
We’re now delighted to announce the full list of winners, which you can find from page seven on the attached supplement!
Finalists underwent a seven-month process of regional heats and intensive training before competing in the finals. They learned of their victory during a special live programme from Channel 4’s Packed Lunch studios, presented by Steph McGovern. The ceremony will be available to watch again on demand soon.
Steph McGovern said: “What a brilliant result. We need to ensure that these fantastic achievements encourage others to follow in their footsteps. Skills have the power to transform lives and economies. WorldSkills UK competitions show how the UK is brimming with brilliant young people doing exceptional things.”
Deputy CEO of WorldSkills UK, Ben Blackledge said: “What a performance. Being crowned best in the UK is no mean feat, especially with all the disruptions and difficulties competitors have had to overcome in recent years.
“Everyone who put themselves forward for the WorldSkills UK competitions this year is a real inspiration and should be proud of their efforts. Skills are the lifeblood of every economy, creating high quality jobs, rewarding careers, inward investment and growth.”
