Ten Loughborough College Caring Services students are vying for top spot at the WorldSkills UK competition after entering for the first time. 

Learners studying the technical certificate in health and social care with the College are competing against health and social care students from across the country to demonstrate their skills and knowledge. 

The Loughborough learners have already completed stage one and are awaiting results to move onto the final. Skills tested include empathy, communication, stress management, moving and handling and flexibility.

The team consists of Liam Simpson, Kane Hoult, Grace Burton, Grace Laxton, Faith Crossley, Ellen King, Emily Cliff, Paul Brenchley, Taylor Achurch and Jasmine Dunn.  

Sharon Geary, Curriculum Manager for Caring Services at Loughborough College, said: “We are very excited to be part of this and exceptionally proud of the work our learners have done so far. It’s even more impressive that they have reached this stage of the competition in their first year.” 

Jo Maher, Principal & CEO of Loughborough College, has been involved with WorldSkills UK for several years, said: “This is a great opportunity for these students to not only showcase their skills and knowledge, but to gain further confidence in their abilities. 

“The competition will be an invaluable experience for our learners to test their skills under pressure and to develop other abilities and share experiences beyond simply their qualification. “  

The WorldSkills UK competition showcases the values, behaviours and attitudes required to work in health and social care.
