15th August 2017
Level 3 Health and Social Care students Chelsey Small and Emily Bonner have scored in the top eight of competitors across all six regional heats of WorldSkills UK – the world’s largest vocational skills competition which aims to find the best adult health and social care students and workers in the country.
South Devon College hosted the regional heats for WorldSkills UK on 27th and 28th June 2017, attracting competitors from across the UK.
During the heats, 78 students and trainees from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales demonstrated their health and care sector skills in a mix of written tests and live activities. They were assessed by a panel of expert judges charged with finding the eight competitors for the finals, which are being held during the Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham this November.
The activities, which included working with older people and people with learning disabilities, were devised by Competition Organising Partner www.Profiles4Care.com to replicate situations which health and social care workers would be expected to face in their everyday roles.
Congratulations Chelsey and Emily!
