WorldSkillsUK: TCG Winners

Six TCG students from across Trafford College and Stockport College competed in the WorldSkillsUK 2022 finals. The finals took place in Blackpool and Northern Ireland, with our students up against the best of the best students from across the country. Students from across the UK competed for bronze, silver, or gold medals as well as the chance to compete in next year’s WorldSkills Olympics hosted in France.

For the final results, we hosted a WorldSkillsUK watchparty at our Aspire restaurant at our Altrincham campus. The final results were broadcast live on Channel 4 with Steph McGovern.

Congratulations to winning students Amy Martin (Gold – Beauty Therapy), Samantha Kinsey (Silver – Nail Technician).

“It felt amazing when I won. I knew there and then that all my hard work had paid off. If it wasn’t for my tutor Jacqueline, for pushing and believing in me, I wouldn’t be where I am now. It takes a lot of practice and hard work, but if you’re willing to put the work in, then you can surprise yourself as I did!” – Silver medal winner Samantha Kinsey

We are incredibly proud of all of our students who took part this year, and we can’t wait to see our students compete in WorldSkillsUK 2023.
