Moulton students build on success

Five learners from one Midlands college will have the chance to build on their success in the national final of the UK SkillBuild competition after triumphing in a regional heat.

Moulton College student Attila Turbok, 19, came first in the wall and floor tiling category, while Brent Willis, 18, came first in the joinery competition.

Cabinet-making students David Williams, Sam Brister and Lizzie Shiner, all 19, took first, second and third places respectively in their category.

David said: “I feel very proud to have won the cabinet-making heat this year, after coming second in 2012 and working hard to improve the speed and technique of my handskills.

“It shows I’m one of the best young trades-people in the area, which I think is definitely something I can be proud of.”

The finalists of the regional heat, one of 15 taking place around the UK, will compete at national level later this year.
