Skills competitions no match for students

Clarendon Sixth Form College students are celebrating success after taking part in the annual Greater Manchester Colleges Group (GMCG) skills competitions 2019.

Performing arts students came third in the musical theatre competition and art and design came third in their category.

The GMCG skills competitions take place at nine colleges across Greater Manchester, pitting students in subjects ranging from art and design to construction against one another in a series of career based challenges. The competitions aim to improve students skills and are designed as a pathway to joining the ‘world skills’ competitions.

Jonathan Putt, assistant principal at Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “The GMCG competitions are a key part of Tameside College’s strategy to give students an outstanding learning experience.  Working under pressure, against the clock and to the highest of standards advances their skills and puts students in the right frame of mind for a future career. The students have done a fantastic job once again and I look forward to our students competing again next year.”
