Brendan Duddy of FIS member Errigal Contracts will carry the flag for the UK in the Worldskills competition for the Plastering and Drywall category.

Worldskills UK has announced the elite squad of skills competitors that will face off against challengers from around the world at the global Worldskills competition in Shanghai later this year.  A total of 39 students and apprentices have been selected through a gruelling run of domestic competitions and bootcamps in over 30 disciplines.

Team UK will face rival competitors in October from China, Germany, Australia, Switzerland and Japan.  Team UK has its sight set firmly on improving its medal position from the previous competition, held in Kazan, Russia in 2019, where it tabled in 12th place.

Team UK will go up against their peers from all over the world over the intense four-day competition in October.  Worldskills Shanghai should have taken place last year but was delayed because of Covid 19 restrictions.  This means our UK champions have had even longer to undergo Worldskills UK’s rigorous elite training regime in preparation for the competition.
