WESTON student wins bronze in a UK caring competition.

Kaitlyn Gray from Axbridge was awarded third place in the final round of the WorldSkills UK caring competition.

Kaitlyn is studying for a BTEC national diploma in health and social care at Weston College.

She said: “I really enjoyed taking part in the competition and when I was awarded third place it made me realise that I am a good carer.

“All the judges were lovely and tried to calm your nerves.

“I am really glad I took part in the competition.”

Lead judge and consulting director at the skills academy, Jennifer Bernard, said: “The skills level demonstrated by our care workers has once again been a pleasure to observe.

“To see competitors confidently showing what they can do when supporting people is a privilege.”

The heat at Exeter College was one of four regional heats.

The highest scoring participants will go to the WorldSkills UK National Caring Competition final in London on July 15.
