College celebrates medal winners

Updated 25/03/2020

23 students from Gower College Swansea have achieved medals as part of the recent set of SkillsCompetitionWales events.

SkillsCompetitionWales consists of a series of local skills competitions, aligned to WorldSkills and the needs of the Welsh economy, funded by Welsh Government and run by a dedicated network of colleges, work-based learning providers and employer-led organisations.

“This is a fantastic result for our students and a very impressive medal haul for Gower College Swansea,” says Principal Mark Jones. “These students worked really hard to prepare for their SkillsCompetitionWales events and I’m delighted that their display of vocational skills and talent has been so richly rewarded by the judging panel.”

“There is so much to be proud of here, from the fact we took home more Gold medals than any other College – in 10 different categories - to the sheer range of the curriculum areas that have supported these competitions. This high quality of performance from our vocational students truly complements the achievements of our A Level students and demonstrates the high level of consistent excellent performance right across the College.

“My congratulations and thanks to everyone involved – the students and the staff. What an outstanding achievement!”
