WorldSkills Competitions provide a great opportunity for our apprentices to test their skills against others in the industry.

We recently welcomed six of Tasmania’s best painting and decorating apprentices to our Clarence Campus for the WorldSkills Australia regional competitions.

The Certificate III in Painting and Decorating apprentices were from local painting businesses and undertaking training at TasTAFE.

They had to complete a range of tasks during the one-day challenge including colour-matching, setting out and drawing a design on a wall and then painting it.

They were judged on the accuracy of their colour-matching, shading and tones and setting-out, as well as their brush strokes and finishes. Their work was judged by a panel made up of TasTAFE teachers and painting industry representatives.

Congratulations to Jamie Spaulding (pictured front right) from Watkins Morgan Painting  who was the winner of the competition.

Jamie received a prize from Dulux and may be chosen to be part of the Tasmanian WorldSkills team competing in the WorldSkills Australia National Championships in 2020.

The WorldSkills Australia National Championships are Australia’s largest skills competition, showcasing more than 60 different skills and bringing together thousands of Australia’s best and brightest apprentices and trainees to compete for the title of national champion.
