The 18-year-old apprentice took part in last week’s competition as a warm up for the WorldSkills International

More than 160 Australian and international competitors were in Perth for the challenge between April 30 and May 3, including three WA apprentices, with events held at polytechnic campuses in Bentley, Carlisle and Midland.

Training and Workforce Development Minister Terry Redman said the event showcased some of Australia’s best up-and-coming workforce talent, as well as Perth’s training facilities.

‘Our WA representatives are great talent and have worked hard to get where they are today,’ Mr Redman said.

‘They will be among more than 1000 of the world’s most talented skill and trade technicians under the age of 23, competing against 60 member countries in Germany, in July.’
