A huge congratulations to the 24 students from New College Lanarkshire who are sending the biggest number of finalists of 194 institutions to the WorldSkills LIVE competition being held in Birmingham in November.

New College Lanarkshire – the students and lecturers – are fantastic. They are showing the talents and skills the people of Lanarkshire and they are building a strong reputation for learning and teaching.

Students will take part in a three-day intensive competition in Birmingham and represent nine specialist skills: Building Information Modelling, Construction Metal Work, Laboratory Technician, Mechanical Engineering: CAD, IT Software Solutions for Business, Network Infrastructure Technician, Network Systems Administrator, Commercial Make-up and Creative Media Make-up.

I hope everyone will be cheering them on and hoping they’ll be bringing back a medal!
