l STU­DENTS rep­re­sent­ing Tame­side Col­lege and Claren­don Sixth Form Col­lege claimed four, out of a pos­si­ble eleven, top places at this year’s Greater Manch­ester Col­lege’s Group (GMCG) com­pe­ti­tions.

Hos­pi­tal­ity, travel and tourism, dig­i­tal me­dia and con­struc­tion stu­dents claimed the top prize for their cat­e­gory. They were joined by fel­low stu­dents who won in­di­vid­ual prizes in: en­ter­prise, en­gi­neer­ing, art and de­sign.

Each year more than 1,000 stu­dents from 10 Greater Manch­ester col­leges take part, com­pet­ing against one another in sub­ject l cat­e­gories. The com­pe­ti­tions in­clude a range of activities based around their cho­sen course, from com­puter aided de­sign to cre­at­ing a dessert.

Com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gories in­cluded: health and so­cial care, dig­i­tal me­dia, con­struc­tion, hair and beauty, en­gi­neer­ing, art and de­sign, en­ter­prise, mu­sic and per­form­ing arts, travel and tourism and sports and pub­lic ser­vices. Each col­lege from GMCG hosts one of the com­pe­ti­tions each year. This year it was Tame­side Col­leges turn to host the con­struc­tion com­pe­ti­tion, sup­ported by lo­cal con­struc­tion busi­nesses as guest judges.

Jackie Moores, prin­ci­pal at Tame­side Col­lege, said: “I am im­mensely proud of all that our stu­dents have achieved in the GMCG skills com­pe­ti­tions this year.

“Com­pe­ti­tions such as this are re­ally im­por­tant for stu­dents to take part in as it gives them ex­pe­ri­ence out­side the class­room and teaches them about work­ing un­der pres­sure. I also have to thank our con­struc­tion depart­ment who hosted the con­struc­tion skills com­pe­ti­tion this year, which I thor­oughly en­joyed, and the teach­ers and support staff across the ten col­leges whose work got us here to­day.”

Stu­dents Daniella Bai­ley, Sarah Bar­ber, Nicole Walker and Paige Stan­ley
