Team UTC Sheffield on the road to Shanghai skills ‘Olympics’

A UTC Sheffield team has got through to the next stage of a global competition after being selected for the WorldSkills Squad UK.

Brad Ellison, Paul Hayter, and Kamil Zmich, are among 137 apprentices and students from across the country who have been chosen for the team after winning competitions at WorldSkills UK.

All three are engineering alumni from UTC Sheffield City Centre, which is Ofsted graded ‘good’. More than 80 countries take part in WorldSkills. The next stage will be the team selection for WorldSkills Shanghai 2021 in China.

Alex Reynolds, Principal of UTC Sheffield City Centre, said: “This is an incredible achievement! I’d like to congratulate our team for ranking amongst the nation’s most highly skilled young people in engineering. I am very proud of them and wish them every success in qualifying for WorldSkills Shanghai.”

WorldSkills UK showcases technical education to inspire more young people to choose vocational careers, and aims to create a world-class skill system to support economic growth, productivity and competitiveness.

The national finals held last term, at Birmingham NEC from November 21st to 23rd, attracted 500 competitors from colleges, universities and industry and involved 70 different skills categories.

Alumni are able to compete in WorldSkills by taking part in more advanced competitions, once they have progressed from the UTC onto apprenticeships or university. For more information about Squad UK, visit https://www.worldskillsuk.org/worldskills-uk-news/uk-s-best-on-road-to-shanghai
