Students from the College’s Skills for Work and Living department students showcased their independence after winning Skills Link Competition in Boston.
The students were entered in to three categories; making a sandwich, making pizza and making cupcakes, challenging their cooking skills and the ability to work independently. Students had to plan and prepare each of their items without the help of staff.
Walking away with the overall trophy the day was a success for New College Stamford’s Skills for Work and Living department. Luke Jefferies won an amazing 1st place for his sandwich creation. Runners up, Sam Harvey won 2nd place for his sandwich and Leslie Liquorish walked away with 2nd place for her pizza – Well done!
Taking part in real competitions not only boosts the student’s self-confidence, but also allows them to build on their strengths and develop their independence whilst having lots of fun at the same time.
