Local teen set to shine
KWINANA teen Joshua Semper (17) will compete against the best up and coming Australian tradespeople at the WorldSkills National Championships in Sydney next month.
The Gilmore College student earned his spot at the event after a strong performance at the 2017 WorldSkills Australia Regional Competitions.
Joshua said his WorldSkills experience was exciting and great practice.
“I hope to take home gold at the National Championships,” he said.
“My family have been my greatest influence in pursuing a trade and I hope to gain an apprenticeship in mechanical fabrication after completing schooling.”
Joshua is completing his second year of a Certificate II in Engineering at South Metropolitan Tafe Rockingham.
WorldSkills Australia chief executive Brett Judd congratulated competitors for excelling in their fields.
He said events like the competition would highlight the diverse opportunities available to those pursuing a trade or skill.
More than 400 competitors from across the country will contend for the title.
