The Worldskills UK Accounting Technician results are in. Find out which team took home the gold.
This year’s final saw teams from BAE Systems, Lloyds Banking Group, GLLM Bangor, Moore East Midlands, New City College and Riverside College compete to become the Wordskills UK Accounting Technician 2022 champions.
Ahead of the final, a presentation skills development session was held to give the teams knowledge and tools to help them succeed on the day.
The finals themselves took place over two days, starting with teamwork and collaboration skills activities. The main tasks focused on one full and one mini case study to complete over the two days, including presenting to the judges on strategic analysis of a fictional business.
The tasks didn't just focus on 'number crunching' and core principles like the previous stages of the competition, but were more about the skills of consulting, communication, critical analysis, adaptability, planning, organising and commercial acumen.
Every one of our finalists can be extremely proud to have made it to the final, as well as the work that was presented on the day.
The results were revealed at 4pm on 25th November during a special live programme from Channel 4’s Packed Lunch studios, presented by Steph McGovern.
1st place - Lloyds Banking Group
2nd - BAE Systems
3rd - Riverside College
