We’re all very proud here at Dowds Group of our plumbing apprentice, Abigail Reilly, who has headed off to Birmingham this week to compete in the WorldSkills UK LIVE National Finals.
Abigail will be taking on the UK’s top young learners, competing for gold in the plumbing category where finalists have to complete a set task in their respective skill area within a limited time in front of the 70,000 plus visitors attending the event.
Everyone at Dowds wishes Abigail all the best of luck and support in the competition this week, we have no doubt she will do fantastic!
Check out Abigail’s interview below with BBC Newsline on the preparation she has undertook for the competition and also her experience on being the only female on site whilst currently working on our South Lakes Leisure Centre project:
