Engineering their success

Engineering apprentices from a local college have been named best in the UK after winning a national competition. Two teams from Shrewsbury Colleges Group have been awarded medals after designing and building a remote-control crane from scratch in a WorldSkills UK competition.

Three 20-year-old Ricoh UK apprentices, Chloe Millington, from Bridgnorth, Belinda Nightingale from Telford and Tom Mills from Shrewsbury, together won Gold in the Manufacturing Team Challenge. The other successful team finished second in the same challenge and consisted of Ryan Lee, from Donnington, Harry Maddox from Newport and Tom Moule from Telford.

The finals took place during November at the NEC, Birmingham. Both teams’ efforts will be rewarded with places in the WorldSkills UK Squad for next year’s Skills Olympics in Shanghai.
