Kwinana Courier - - Front Page - Vic­to­ria Ri­fici

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.
