Two students from West London College have fought off tough competition to secure a place in the prestigious national finals of the WorldSkills UK Competitions.

Sam Dixon and Max Dandy from London will compete against other Carpenters from all over the UK in front of over 70,000 visitors at WorldSkills UK LIVE in Birmingham.

Taking place from 15 – 17 November at the NEC, WorldSkills UK LIVE is the country’s largest experiential skills, apprenticeships and careers event. Winners will then go on to represent the UK at international skills competitions next year.

WorldSkills UK LIVE competitions are run in over 60 skill areas and help people go further and faster in their training and chosen career. The WorldSkills UK LIVE competition in Carpentry is run in partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).

Dr Neil Bentley, Chief Executive WorldSkills UK LIVE, said:

“I offer my congratulations to West London College. Our competitions equip apprentices and learners with the lifelong, world-class skills that will drive up training standards to the highest level to help boost UK productivity and competitiveness.”
