On Thursday 19th November a number of VSP employees visited the Skills Show in Birmingham NEC where they discovered more about the benefits and opportunities of embedding skills competitions in to teaching and learning practices for the delivery of Apprenticeships.  Employees also witnessed first-hand a number of UK Semi Finals across various categories including; hospitality, business and engineering whereby learners demonstrated their amazing abilities via a series of skill-specific tests designed by industry experts. The winners of these Semi Finals will go on to compete in the Finals in Abu Dhabi in what is sure to be an outstanding experience for all that take part.

 The Skills Show has certainly inspired VSP staff to encourage VSP learners and employers to engage in the events in 2016.  Despite securing a Silver Award in the 2015 Wales Skills Competition for Health & Social Care (a tremendous feat for our first year attempt), we are now more determined than ever to secure a number of places at the UK event- and even come away with a winner!!

 VSP staff now have a full understanding of the competition journey and the structures in Wales, the UK and internationally and we are fully prepared for entering competitors into future competitions. Bring it on!!
