East Surrey College students rise to the challenge in WorldSkills Masterclass
East Surrey College students demonstrated their talents in a WorldSkills Masterclass competition last week. On Wednesday 26 June, 18 students from Plumbing, Brickwork and Painting & Decorating put their skills to the test in 2 hour mini competitions. The event was supervised by WorldSkills UK coach, Kevin Bland and the students work was judged by local employers, Jes Chandler (Managing Director at Stanton Construction Ltd, Reigate) and Paul Marsh (Engineer at Folio UK Ltd, Purley).

Prior to the event, six tutors took part in a session with Kevin Bland to guide them on WorldSkills Competition coaching techniques, to help them develop student’s skills, resilience and confidence. Tutors were then required to prepare the competition briefs for the event.

On the day of the event, students were briefed on WorldSkills and the levels of competition that are available including regional, national and world-wide events. They then received guidance and support from their tutors prior to their competitions. After two hours of dedicated work from all competitors, Ceirain Aherne won First Place in Plumbing, Patrick Simpson won First Place in Painting & Decorating and Haydn Johnston won First Place in Brickwork.

Judge Jes Chandler (Managing Director at Stanton Construction) commented;

'The work I have seen from students today has been exceptional and has demonstrated real quality and attention to detail. It’s really important for companies to be involved with skill based education as it allows us to gain an understanding of what our future employees are being taught.'

The College would like to thank WorldSkills for their support and congratulate students for the hard work and exceptional talent that was demonstrated in the competitions.
