Medals and glory for Team UK at EuroSkills
Wednesday, 3 October 2018
WorldSkills UK won 1 gold, 3 bronze and 7 medallions of excellence.
Team UK, managed by WorldSkills UK, competed at EuroSkills 2018 in Budapest, from 26th to 28th September. RUBI sponsored Mark Scott, who represented the UK in Wall and Floor Tiling, providing resources, such as tiling tools and clothing...
Mark finished 7th out of 13 and was ahead of some of the most highly regarded European countries in Wall and Floor Tiling including Sweden and the Netherlands.
Mark achieved one of the best marks the UK has ever achieved in Wall and Floor Tiling in past competitions. There was very little to separate the top seven of 13, and Mark was one point off a medal place.
This stands the UK in a good position for WorldSkills Kazan 2019 and Mark now goes back to training with Daniel McBurney, also an apprentice tiler, as part of Squad UK. Both Mark and Daniel are sponsored by RUBI and in March next year they will go head to head to compete for the one place to represent the UK in Wall and Floor Tiling in Kazan.
Medals for the UK team
Regarding the other competitions at EuroSkills, the 22 women and men, who competed against their peers from across the Continent won 1 gold, 3 bronze and 7 medallions of excellence.
The results, which placed the UK in ninth place of 27 countries, bolstered organisers WorldSkills UK – whose mission is to accelerate careers and achieve excellence and optimum levels of skills performance.
Dr Neil Bentley, CEO of WorldSkills UK said: “This is a fantastic result for Team UK and the country as a whole. We were gunning for a top ten position and we got it!
These brilliant young people – training and preparing them to be among the very best across Europe -are the UK’s new generation of high flyers.
Budapest was a litmus test to see how the UK might fare when we leave the European Union next year. We had an amazing result and the team worked incredibly hard, but we can’t be complacent. Other countries across Europe are investing heavily in skills development, and we need to ensure we don’t fall behind.
Governments, employers and the education sector- must embrace this success and use the energy and momentum generated here to inspire to help propel economic growth and productivity.”
From RUBI UK & Ireland we want to congratulate all the Team UK for the amazing results and we want to wish all the best luck to Mark Scott and Daniel McBurney and to stay focus for the next competition!
Happy Halloween Night!
