SRC students secure a winning six-medal haul at Birmingham’s WorldSkills UK Live
Southern Regional College is celebrating this week after retaining its top three leader board ranking at this year’s WorldSkills UK Live event held in Birmingham.
Honouring the achievements of more than 200 of the UK’s most highly skilled apprentices and tradespeople, SRC’s six-medal haul from the event also saw it retain its number one place in Northern Ireland on the strength of its stellar performance.
Facing tough competition, SRC’s team of students from across the Newry & Mourne, Down, Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon areas secured two gold medals, one silver and three bronze medals across a wide variety of disciplines, including butchery, tiling, plumbing and beauty – in addition to two commendations.
More than 85,000 people visited the show at Birmingham’s NEC over the three full days of competition.
