Josh Makes EuroSkills Team!

At the end of November this year, L and G Engineering apprentice Josh Peek will be joining 20 other young UK hopefuls at EuroSkills 2016 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Josh, who trains at Great Yarmouth College, is Team UK’s entrant in the welding section of the competition, in which more than 30 European countries will compete.

EuroSkills brings together young people up to the age of 25 who excel in their chosen vocational skill, with the aim of promoting the status and appeal of vocational training. Skills in the competition include construction, engineering, hospitality and creative disciplines. Running alongside the actual competition are a number of exhibitions, seminars and try-a-skill challenges.

At L and G we’re very proud of Josh and his extremely competent welding skills – he’s a valuable member of our team, and we’d like to wish him the very best of luck at EuroSkills! Next stop Abu Dhabi for WorldSkills!

As Skills Minister Nick Boles said: “The young people who have earned a place on Team UK are worthy ambassadors and show the great things you can achieve with high quality apprenticeships and technical training.”
