WorldSkills Heats 2019

Well done to all the students from UK colleges who came to Shipley College in July to compete in heats for the world’s largest vocational skills competition.

These WorldSkills UK heats were part of the process to find the best adult Health & Social Care students and workers in the country. Before a panel of judges, competitors showcased their skills in a range of scenarios which replicated situations Health & Social Care workers would face every day. These included caring for patients with mental health issues, learning difficulties and the after-effects of a stroke.

On the first day, Bailey Doherty of Walsall College took first place, Supavinee Nuanjan of Coleg Cambria won second place, and Melanie Owusu of the Sheffield College placed third.

On the second day, first place went to Peter Hunter from the City of Glasgow College, second place to Victoria Winterman from Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training and third place to Grimsby Institute’s Hollie Scarborough.

Visitors who came in to watch the heats included representatives from Bingley Grammar School, the Health & Social Care Industrial Centre of Excellence and Shipley College Board of Governors.

Successful candidates will go through to the finals in November.
