The colleges are Barking & Dagenham, Belfast Metropolitan, Blackpool & The Fylde, Cardiff & Vale, Edinburgh, and Middlesbrough, whilst the National Final of the WorldSkills UK Industrial Robotics Competition will be hosted this year by FANUC at their UK headquarters in Coventry.

Designed by industry experts, WorldSkills UK competitions help young people grow personally and professionally developing their technical and employability skills and boosting their confidence. If competitors impress at the national final, they could be in with a chance of representing the UK in the “skills olympics” in France in 2024.

The winners of each competition will be announced by Steph McGovern in a special live medal ceremony show broadcast from her Packed Lunch Studio on Friday 25 November.

Wishing the SRC team and their mentors the very best of luck this week!
