Inclusive Skills Competitions 2018
Inclusive Skills Competitions are run by Natspec in partnership with the Association of Colleges, and supported by WorldSkills UK, and enable young people with learning difficulties and disabilities to showcase their work skills and growing independence. Winners from the regional heats go through to the finals at the World Skills UK Live in November.
This year two Derwen College students, Adam and Carter, represented the West Midlands in the UK Finals of the Inclusive Skills competitions at WorldSkills UK LIVE at the NEC.
Carter was a finalist in the restaurant services competition, and Adam competed in catering. Both competed to a high standard, but unfortunately on the day, the competition was too strong.
We are however extremely proud of both Adam and Carter for competing at national level. Staff and students travelled to the show to watch the competition and a great day was had by all!
