Top college in the UK for WorldSkills

City of Glasgow College is Number One for Skills in the UK once more following a record medal haul at this year’s WorldSkills UK LIVE. 

The 30-strong team of students from Scotland’s Super College returned triumphant with four gold, four silver and six bronze medals. 

Three students also gained Highly Commended awards and another record was achieved for Inclusive Skills with two gold medals and one silver medal. 

Paul Little, Principal and Chief Executive, City of Glasgow College, said: 

“This is our best medal tally yet a truly remarkable achievement. I am delighted that the incredible hard work of our students and lecturers has paid off. 

“To be at the top of the WorldSkills league table yet again shows just how well we are doing in preparing our students to be the best in their chosen career. 

“Our top priority at City of Glasgow College is to equip all our students with the hard and soft skills they will need as they enter the world of work. As an advocate for tertiary excellence, I firmly believe these competitions help to improve skills levels and deliver economic growth.” 

The students competed in core disciplines which this year included digital video production, fine jewellery making, media makeup: body, fashion and photographic makeup, and customer care. 

Medals were awarded in 70 different skills in total. Over 500 top apprentices and learners from 115 colleges and training providers across the UK competed at the elite skills competition which took place from 15 to 17 November at Birmingham’s NEC.
