WorldSkills UK LIVE is the UK's largest skills, apprenticeship and careers event.

At the heart of the event are the National Finals of the WorldSkills UK Competitions, which are run in 70 different skills across industries including digital, technology, engineering, construction and hospitality.

Astrid and Daisy were able to display their creative skills to a national audience at the Finals after excelling in the national qualifiers which took place in the summer.

They were joined by over 500 of the UK's top apprentices and learners who all competed in the finals with the aim of winning Gold, Silver and Bronze in their chosen skill.

Janet Smith, Principal New City College Epping Forest and Redbridge campuses said:

We are very proud of both Astrid and Daisy for competing in the finals! It is a fantastic achievement to make it to the UK finals and showcase their talents and creativity on a national stage.

Designed by industry experts, the WorldSkills UK Competitions equip apprentices and learners with the world-class skills needed to help UK businesses better compete globally.

The WorldSkills UK Competition in creative media make-up is run in partnership with Coleg Cambria.
