Five of Northumberland College's students could stand a chance
of competing in the WorldSkills UK IT categories, at The Skills
Show, the UK's largest skills and career event after their
tremendous North East Regional Heat success, where they competed
against students from colleges across the North East.
Three Northumberland College students - Ryan MacKennan, Michael
Davison and Jarom Gibson - were placed first, second and third,
respectively, in the IT Support Technician Advanced heat, with Jake
Butterfield also competing.
Whilst Morgan Gent and Ben Middleton were placed first and
second in the IT Software Solutions for Business.
The students will now have to wait in anticipation until next
month, when all regional heats from across the UK have been
complete, to find out if their success has secured them enough
points to place in the finals.
WorldSkills UK Competitions inspire apprentices and young
people to be ambitious in their pursuit of skills excellence to
raise productivity. These competitions equip young people with
the skills to help UK business compete.
