PSJ Fabrications would like to congratulate apprentices taking part in The ATG Academy programme for their outstanding performance in the WorldSkills UK Industrial Control Competition. The apprentices showed absolutely fantastic results bringing PSJ Fabrications’ parent company, The Automated Technology Group, the Gold Medal and proceeding to the next stage of the competition.

The Industrial Control Competition took place between 19 and 21 November 2015 as part of The Skills Show at the Birmingham NEC. Over three days young people from all across the UK put their control systems knowledge and technical skills to the test in front of an audience of 75,000 people who were attending the event.

This year The Automated Technology Group was represented by two teams. The Gold Medal was secured by Yestin Lamptey and Bradley Crisp, and last year’s medallists, Josh Russell and James Mason, also achieved a high score.

“Taking part in the WorldSkills UK competition has definitely been the highlight of my apprenticeship so far. I am very grateful for this fantastic opportunity and would like to thank Josh Russel and James Mason for the training and mentoring that we received. I look forward to competing for a place in Team UK for WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017,” said Bradley Crisp, Apprentice and Trainee Engineer for The Automated Technology Group.

Apprentices from both teams have all been nominated for Squad UK, which is a training and development programme designed to select the members for Team UK ahead of WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017. Held every two years The WorldSkills Competition is the largest vocational education and skills excellence event in the world attended by thousands of visitors.

PSJ Fabrications and The Automated Technology Group would like to thank the apprentices for all for their hard work and look forward to supporting them in the next stage of the competition.
