A Wisbech health and social care student has come third in a debut regional competition.
Megan Clark, 17, who studies at the College of West Anglia, competed against other students – including those from colleges in London and the Midlands – at the debut WorldSkills UK contest.
Harriet McDonald, 19 and from King’s Lynn, came second in the competition which tests apprentices and young people from across the country on their chosen skill.
Entrants were judged and scored in four different categories, which required them to role play health or social care scenarios to demonstrate their caring skills and knowledge.
Ann Compton, curriculum support manager for care and early years, said: “The hard work has really paid off for the girls and it was great to be there to celebrate with them.
