Queensland cleans up at WorldSkills competition

Queensland apprentices and trainees claimed 22 medals at the WorldSkills competition.

Queensland’s best apprentices and trainees have come out on top after bringing home 22 medals from the WorldSkills Australia National Competition held in Sydney recently.

State minister for education, training and employment John-Paul Langbroek commended the 82 competitors who represented the sunshine state at the annual skills contest.

“Well done to all of our state competitors who have worked hard to develop their skills and reach this pinnacle of success in the national arena,” Mr Langbroek said.

Over the three day contest, Queensland’s top young apprentices and trainees battled it out in more than 50 trade and skill categories.

“They have made us very proud, going up against more than 450 competitors from across the country to win eight gold, seven silver and seven bronze medals.”

Out of the 22 Queensland medal winners, six were enrolled in school-based apprenticeships and traineeships.

Mr Langbroek said vocational training opened up a wide array of career options for school students, with more opportunities than ever in the trade and skills field.

The country’s largest skills competition aims to showcase Australia’s most talented tradespeople, while also drawing attention to the opportunities vocational training presents.

The winners of this year’s annual contest may be eligible to compete at the international competition in Leipzig, Germany next year.
