CONEL Gaming Student Competed at Semi-Finals of the WorldSkills Competition
CONEL’s Games and Animation Level 3 student, Jada Sangster participated in the semi-finals of the WorldSkills competition run by South Thames College on Tuesday 7 June 2016.
During the semi-finals Jada was given the brief to model food for a cooking game that is currently in the development stage. The competition allowed Jada to demonstrate her creative and technical skills against 18 other students at WorldSkills UK.
The WorldSkills UK Competition is designed by industry experts; the competitions assess knowledge, practical skills and employability against a set of strict criteria. The competition inspires young people to be ambitious in their pursuit of skills excellence to equip them with the skills needed for UK businesses.
Jada said: “I am so excited that I got through to the semi final of the WorldSkills Modelling Competition, especially as I have worked very hard on improving my skills. Thank you to my tutor who was very supportive and gave me excellent advice in areas of difficultly. I am definitely looking forward to the next stages of the competition”
Gareth Healey, Jada’s Games and Animation Tutor, stated: “We are all so proud of Jada and her recent success. As one of our rising stars she has a bright future ahead of her in this sector and I personally wish her all the luck in the world for the next stage: knock ‘em dead, Jada.”
