In Table Laying regional competition Ciaran Bevan was awarded second prize and Benjamin Pugh received a certificate of participation. In Word Processing and Functional Skills National competition, Shaun Bratt won first prize and James Roberts was presented with second place. Shaun and James will now attend the national finals at the NEC in November.

Soroosh Yousefian, Learning and Teaching Developer at Hereward College said:

“We are very proud of our students who all displayed excellent personal and employability skills in the regional and national competitions this year. They have achieved fantastic results in ICT, Table Laying, Media and Functional Skills.”

Inclusive skills competitions are supported by Natspec (National Association of Specialist Colleges) and take place at various colleges across the region during the summer term. These are an exciting and fun way to show off the skills students have learnt at college by taking part in fully supported competitions.

Each competition category was judged by industry specialists, who were unanimous in their praise of the level of skill demonstrated by all competitors.
