After a yearsโ€™ worth of competition, the finalists came together at Tameside College and MAN Truck & Bus to undertake their final 6 tasks under the watchful eyes of our team of volunteer judges. They had already been nominated, taken an online quiz, taken part in a one-day practical national qualifier and then underwent training days and employer visits with it culminating in a two-day practical live final for World Skills UK.
