Two local students have been named as finalists in the WorldSkills UK Forensic Science Competition.
Jess Chamley and Jayde Hedges are BTEC Forensic Science students, at Ashton Sixth Form College. The students competed at the WorldSkills Competition Heats in June in Staffordshire University, they will now face eleven other finalists at the Skills Show held at the NEC in November.
Gary Howard, Managing Director of Complete Forensics C.I.C. who are the National Competition Organisers, based in Tameside said: “Jess and Jayde should be extremely proud of themselves, they have both worked very hard to secure their place in the National finals. They have held their own and shown that BTEC students can compete and in some cases beat degree level students. I know the staff at Ashton Sixth Form College are also very proud and wish both ladies the best of luck in the next stage of the WorldSkills Competition. This achievement is a huge boost for them and shows that hard work and great support can help people get steps closer to their dream.”
