I was speechless when they said I made into Team UK for WorldSkills Kazan. It means so much to me and my family. I’m straight back to work this week and I know I'll need to continue to train hard, but I’m prepared to give it my all. Being able to take part in WorldSkills will be so beneficial to my career as it will open up a huge network for me. I would urge all apprentices to get involved.

It was a total shock when they told me I'd made Team UK, I wasn’t expecting it all. I work for my family business and this means so much to everyone. I've been training in the evenings after work and at the weekends, and I will continue to do so, as winning a medal in Kazan would mean everything to me.

I'm so proud to be in Team UK and representing the construction industry at WorldSkills Kazan. I know the next five months will be tough, as I have to up my game even more and focus on the international competition, but I'm doing this for my family and employer, and I want to make everyone proud.
Curtis Johnston, Plastering and Dry Wall Systems
Bring on WorldSkills Kazan! My employer, Clackmannanshire Council, has been so supportive throughout my involvement in competitions. They have seen how my skills have improved and I'm determined to do everyone proud out in Russia. The next five months will be hard work as I train, but I'm determined to do everyone proud.

I'm buzzing with the news I've been selected for Team UK. The wait to find out was so nerve wracking. I turned 21 during team selection but I had to put my celebrations on hold, now it will be double celebrations, and then back to training. The standard at EuroSkills Budapest was high and I know in Kazan it will be even higher, but I'm determined to give it my all and go for a medal.
