Matt Barton – Awarded a Medallion of Excellence at the World Skills Championship in Budapest.

Congratulations to Matt for being awarded a Medallion of Excellence at the World Skill Championship in Budapest and well done to Team UK for the overall team effort!!

Matt Barton, son of our clients Will and Marie Barton of WE Barton (Plumbing & Heating) Ltd. has made us all incredibly proud by being selected to represent the UK in the plumbing and heating discipline at the World Skills Championship. 

Matt, who trained at Kendal College, had to work extremely hard to secure his place in Team UK. The nominated apprentices and learners went through an exhaustive selection process and ultimately take part in the prestigious World Skills UK National Competition.This event brings together apprentices and students from across the country to compete to be the best in their chosen skill and for them to go forward to represent the UK at the global competition.

Dr Neil Bentley, CEO of World Skills UK, which selects and trains Team UK to the highest international standard, said: “This will be a life-enhancing opportunity for these remarkable young people.

“Team UK are the embodiment not only of the kinds of traits and characteristics that we should aspire for in a young workforce, but for the UK Government’s ambitions for Global Britain too. They are leaders of their generation and will inspire many more to walk in their footsteps.

"European Policy makers, educators and industry partners will attend the event – along with an expected 80,000 spectators. After Brexit, our economic success as a nation will be dependent on our ability to close major trade deals and attract inward investment – and this will always hinge on demonstrating we have people with the right skills”.
