Trafford College one of only five national colleges to host WorldSkills UK Roadshow

Trafford College was selected as one of only five national colleges to welcome the WorldSkills Roadshow and host information sessions for students and staff this week.

Former 2012 Team GB star and WorldSkills UK Performance Coach Peter Bakare, supported by WorldSkills UK Skills Champions, kick-started the morning’s activities with an interactive session for staff to advise how skills competitions can be embedded into the curriculum.

Representatives also took the opportunity to discuss with staff any barriers they feel are preventing apprentices and students from entering WorldSkills UK Competitions, particularly those from under-represented groups.

The afternoon session focused on the College’s students and apprentices, and gave different perspectives on how to engage in competitions, as well as activities which focussed on team building and communication. There was also the opportunity for students to be selected to join the development programme to represent the UK at the international WorldSkills Competition.

In a recent survey, over 95 per cent of young people who took part in WorldSkills UK Competitions believed that the experience improved their technical and employability skills, while over 80 per cent felt competing had increased their confidence, team working, management and ability to work under pressure.
