Tiffany Tops Regional Construction Skills Competition

An impressive Plumbing student is paving the way for female success within the industry.

Tiffany Baker, who studies Plumbing at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, came out on top at the regional heats of the HIP Female Skills National Competition earlier this month, which was held at York College.

She will now go on to compete against five other finalists at the 2023 HIP Female Skills National Finals next week, due to be held in London.

Tiffany said,

“I’m really excited about reaching the national finals, I’ve worked hard and I’m thankful for the support and guidance I’ve received from my lecturers”

“There is a need for more women in the construction industry, and I hope that my story encourages girls to consider a career in the industry, and to apply for a related course at college!”

Marius Jones, Programme Area Manager for Construction and Engineering at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, said,

"It is encouraging to see that one of our female learners will be competing on a national stage, and I’m hopeful that seeing Tiffany’s success will attract more women to study Construction, and to go on to an industry that calls out for more female workers"

"As a department, we are very proud of Tiffany's resounding success. Reaching the final in a competition like this is extremely difficult, the standard is very high. Well done Tiffany, and good luck in the final."
