The Best Skills Competitors in Wales Recognised by Deputy Minister


The successes of Welsh learners, students and apprentices who competed in two major skills competitions have been celebrated at special events in Cardiff.

Competitors gathered at the Senedd and City Hall to be honoured for their achievements at Skills Competition Wales and the WorldSkills UK final, which took place at the Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham last November.

During Skills Competition Wales, the country’s most talented apprentices, employees and learners battled it out in competitions ranging from reflexology to web development, and the highest scoring competitors were awarded bronze, silver and gold medals in their chosen skill.

The WorldSkills UK final, at the NEC in Birmingham saw more than 600 participants from across the UK take part in more than 60 competitions to be named the ‘best in the UK’.
