Students progress to Regional Qualifiers in WorldSkills UK Laboratory Technician Competition

The WorldSkills UK competition provides students with the opportunity to expand their subject knowledge and challenge themselves in a competitive environment. With more students from CCCG entering the WorldSkills competition each year, learners from across the college group have taken the opportunity to showcase their skills and compete against their peers.

In the first round of the competition, the students completed an online workbook which assessed their maths and laboratory skills. They all scored highly thanks to their exceptional laboratory techniques and are now able to continue to the regional phase of the competition.

The eight qualifying students, who are studying either Laboratory Sciences – T Level or Applied Science – Level 3 Extended Diploma courses are:

  • Kiyan Addo
  • Quluuda Ahmed
  • Elisa Campione-Viscido
  • Armony Hermitt
  • Sogdiana Mamurova
  • Armante Masaityte
  • Mobasherah Sabet
  • Beren Yapici

Any students that make it through the regional stage will progress to the National Finals in November, where they will have the chance to compete for a medal in their category. In 2023, CANDI student Dante Senior came third Laboratory Technician challenge at the National Finals, bringing home a bronze medal.

We wish you all the best in the next stage of the WorldSkills UK Competition!
