Annual Skills Test Competition
A group of Year 10 and Year 11 students visited University College Isle of Man on Friday 16 March to watch the annual Skills Test Competition.
Students were able to see UCM students taking on a variety of challenges in the specialist areas of brickwork, carpentry and joinery, plumbing, electrical installation, horticulture, as well as painting and decorating.
The UCM tutors were on hand to explain the challenges, and to offer advice to those interested in pursuing a career in these industries.
Former BHS students were taking part in some of the challenges, and the Year 10 and 11s were able to ask them questions about life at UCM and as an apprentice.
