Year 8 Careers Fortnight – WorldSkills Champions06 June 2017
Three WorldSkills Champions visited Penryn College as part of the Year 8 Careers Fortnight. WorldSkills UK helps young people go further, faster in their careers by helping them gain the skills that employers need most. They run world-class apprenticeships and improve technical skills through competitions.
WorldSkills UK Champions are members of a growing network of inspiring young professionals who have competed in a WorldSkills UK National Final. Many Champions have gone on to represent the UK internationally. Skills Champions are now out working in industry and act as inspirational role models for future generations of apprentices and young people.
We were visited by Nikita Harron (Health and Social Care), Rosie Rotherham (Fitness) and Gregg Gordon (Plastering).
Rosie travelled to Penryn College from Port Isaac, Gregg from London and Nikita came all the way from Northern Ireland! All to share their experiences with our students. As well as talking about their career paths they gave them the chance to ‘Have a Go’ at the skills involved in each of their careers.
Thank you to Nikita, Rosie and Gregg!
