Apprentice aims high at WorldSkills event

Congratulations to Briggs and Forrester apprentice Dan Martins for getting through to the WorldSkills UK SkillPLUMB final! Later this week he’ll discover if he’s won his competition and the opportunity to be selected to be in the UK team at the international finals in Abu Dhabi in 2017!

WorldSkills competitions motivate and inspire apprentices and young employees to push their technical and professional skills, and help to drive UK business and skill levels forward. The SkillPLUMB competition is designed to focus on competence and standards in the plumbing industry.

Eamon Wilson, from Briggs & Forrester’s training partner EAS Mechanical said, “We have been involved in the competitions for the last 7 years and Dan is our first finalist. This is due to his exceptional work and the good training he has received from his employer. We believe Dan stands a very good chance of winning, not only because of his skills, but also how calm he is under pressure.
