Tutor Louise Bird said: “Everyone had a fantastic day and I was so proud to see every student showcasing an extremely high standard of professional skills.

“Even our students who weren’t placed in the final results did incredibly well and I’m very proud of their work.”

Tutors will now be looking at potential students to put forward into the WorldSkills UK competitions which bring together apprentices and young people from across the country to compete to be the best in their chosen skill.
