New City College student Lucy-Ann Gibson is celebrating winning her second award in two months after scooping a medal in the Worldskills UK 2023 national competition.
Lucy, who attends NCC Redbridge campus, was awarded the Bronze Medal for Restaurant Foundation Skills in Catering and Hospitality after impressing the judges at the finals of the competition held in Manchester.
This follows Lucy being presented with the Foundation Learning and SEND Student of the Year trophy at the New City College Achievement Awards in London in October!
Her teacher Tony Pecoraro, Hospitality & Culinary Arts Lecturer, said the college was incredibly proud of her success in the Worldskills competition that involved hundreds of students across the UK.
He said: “This is a remarkable achievement by Lucy and very inspiring for other students. The standard was very high but she showed off her skills, creativity and competency and really impressed the panel of judges. We wish Lucy the very best in her future career.”
The WorldSkills challenge is an opportunity for young people to showcase their talent and demonstrate all they have learned at college. More than 3,000 young students and apprentices took part in the competition in over 60 disciplines – from plumbing to aircraft maintenance and beauty therapy to digital media.
