Invited by Claire Curtis-Thomas MP, chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Building Services Engineering group, the competition finalists of SkillFRIDGE -Martin Davey, Jason Smith, Richard May and Anthony Leng received a slap on the back during their visit to the Houses of Parliament last week.

WorldSkills 2011, the international skills competition, is expected to attract 1,300 competitors from 47 disciplines. The finalists of the UK skills competition sponsored by SummitSkills, the sector skills council for building services engineering, were joined by fellow Summitskills finalists Christopher Lonsdale (SkillPLUMB), Richard Sagar (SkillELECTRIC) and Scott Reid (SkillPLUMB).

'Skills competitions help develop a culture of ambition and aspiration and raise skills standards throughout the workforce as well as encourage young people to focus on their future careers,' said John Denham, Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills.

Denham said employers could provide their most talented employees with the opportunity to gain recognition and enhance the reputation of their business by getting involved in such skills competitions.

The Summitskills competition finalists pictured here are Martin Davey (SkillFRIDGE), Christopher Lonsdale (SkillPLUMB), Richard Sagar (SkillELECTRIC), Jason Smith (SkillFRIDGE), Richard May (SkillFRIDGE), Scott Reid (Skill PLUMB) and Anthony Leng (SkillFRIDGE).
