Skills Competitions

At Northern Regional College we encourage all our students to participate in skills competitions.  Taking part in competitions is a very important part of a student’s career development and learning experience and is an excellent way to enhance their skills and knowledge while providing them with an opportunity to test their skills against their peers from other Colleges.

Each year our students from various vocational subject areas such as engineering CAD, CNC milling, mechatronics, welding, IT, health and social care, carpentry and joinery, brickwork, electrical installation and plumbing pipework are involved in competitions from, campus, inter-campus to regional, national and international level.  The ultimate goal is to compete in the prestigious WorldSkills competition which occurs every two years and is the biggest vocational education and skills excellence in the world.
