Well done to Gary Doyle (centre below), who has received the BEM in the Queen’s birthday honours. Gary received this award for his amazing achievement winning Gold (for plumbing) at the WorldSkills event last year in Brazil.
what is worldskills?
The WorldSkills Competition is held every two years and is the biggest vocational education and skills excellence event in the world that truly reflects global industry. The Competitors represent the best of their peers and are selected from skill competitions in WorldSkills Member countries and regions. They are all under the age of 23 years (except for four skills that have the age limit of 25). They demonstrate technical abilities both individually and collectively to execute specific tasks for which they study and/or perform in their workplace.
