We’re very pleased to confirm the details of the WorldSkills UK Accounting Technician competition finals. WorldSkills supports young people across the world via training based on competitions.
This competition has been designed by Kaplan to ‘reflect the role of an accountant and the standards that are expected within the financial sector’.
The finals competition will take the format of a set business case study with accompanying tasks and assessments to be undertaken in the given time period. This year, it’s being held on 17 and 18 November at Barking and Dagenham College.
It’s a team competition and this year’s finalists are from:
Lloyds Banking Group
Moore East Midlands
New City College
The teams will have to demonstrate a range of skills including teamwork, commercial acumen, critical thinking, and problem solving, to name a few!
The winners will be announced at 4pm on 25th November by ex-apprentice and current TV presenter Steph McGovern, on her show, Steph’s Packed Lunch, on Channel 4.
Congratulations and thanks to all of the teams who entered the competition. It’s been wonderful to see everyone take part and make the competition a huge success.
