WorldSkills UK Finals: The Winners and Medalists

On Friday 26th November at 4pm the medalists and winners of the WorldSkills UK Competition were announced online with a special show hosted by Steph McGovern, a long time supporter of the event and the ethos behind it.

WorldSkills UK is a celebration of all the industries requiring a specialised skill and the people who do these jobs. It highlights their hard work and professionalism. Floristry is proud to be a part of it.

The Floristry results are………..

Gold Medal and First Place:

Catey Burn: Apprentice at Old Oak Florist and BCA College

“Achieving Gold honestly means so much to me, it has really boosted my confidence with floristry and confirmed for me that I’m in the right career! It’s amazing to know that all the hard work I put in (and the stress!) has paid off. I had so much fun competing, I was up against some really amazing florists and met some fabulous people. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for my floristry future! “
