And the winners are...

World Skills

The talent on show at this year’s IMI Skills Competitions was amazing – from Heavy Vehicles and Body Repair to Automotive Technology and Refinishing. But now it’s time to find out who are the winners.

Tune in to the National Finals 2021 virtual medal ceremony hosted live by Steph McGovern from her Channel 4 Packed Lunch studio from 4pm on Friday 26 November. We’ll celebrate the skill of students and apprentices from around the UK.

The winners take home the accolade of being among the best and brightest in the industry in their particular field – and will be in with a chance to represent the UK at the WorldSkills event in Shanghai in 2022.
