We’re very, very pleased as a
University to be hosting in fact the Team Selection for the wood trades for WorldSkills UK for the Kazan international competition.
So particularly pleased to be one of four centres across the UK hosting these
Team Selection events. Absolutely critical that we, as part of Team UK, can measure ourselves on the world stage so, going forward, we hope we’re going to have some Welsh competitors in Team UK, and therefore we’re benchmarking ourselves
against the best in the world in a broad range of skills. From a Welsh perspective
we identify within Wales the importance of skills for the economy of Wales and, as we’ve been seeing here this week, the skills related to the construction
industry are critical to our economy going forward.
