Lucas achieves Silver

On Tuesday evening November 8, Lucas Robertson was awarded the Silver medal for his achievement in the recent Regional World Skills Competition. In addition to his VCE subjects of; English, Further Mathematics, Physical Education, Food Technology and Religious Education (School-based), Lucas undertook the Certificate II in Kitchen Operations at The Gordon TAFE. This was the subject that provided Lucas with the opportunity to compete against his peers in an Adult Learning environment.

Competitors who do well at a Regional Competition are invited to compete at the National Championships, where tens of thousands of spectators watch Australia’s best trades and skills talent compete. From there, you may even be asked to join the Skills Squad, where you’ll have the opportunity to travel internationally and test yourself against the best trades and skills talent in the world. A fantastic experience and certainly great for the Resume !!

WorldSkills Australia has been in operation for over 40 years and facilitates the opportunity for young Australians to have access to Vocational Education and Training (VET) that measures up on an international stage. World Skills is acutely aware that skills and trades are critical for building thriving economies, productive communities and confident young people.
