The finalists for the WorldSkills UK Accounting Technician competition have been announced.
WorldSkills supports young people across the world via competitions-based training. This particular competition has been designed by Kaplan tutors to ‘reflect the role of an Accountant and the standards that are expected within the financial sector’.
Following the qualifiers held in July, four teams will be moving on to the final in our Accounting Technician competition: Riverside College, Lloyds Team 2, City of Glasgow College and LIFO the Party (Bridgend College).
In the next stage, to help the teams prepare and practise for the finals, they will take part in a "development day". The aim of this day is to cover relevant topics that they'll face in the finals.
The finals will take place on Monday 15th November at MediaCity UK, where the four teams will come together to compete for 1st place. They will have 4 hours to work through a case study, which they will then present back to the judges. The winners will be announced via an online broadcast from Channel 4’s studios on Friday 26th November at 4pm.
We'd like to congratulate, thank, and recognise all of the teams who entered and have been a part of this year's competition. It's been great to see everyone overcome the virtual challenges and still put in a huge effort to make the competition a success.
