The competition champions apprenticeships and technical skills, and four Havant and South Downs College students studying media have impressed judges.

Lisa Penney, Steven Cox, Adam Scott-Parker and Toby Summers presented their Motown music video earlier this year. Because of their success, they have been invited to the final of World Skills UK.

Lecturer David Cook said: ‘I’m so proud of the students. They’ve worked very hard to get to this stage, taking on a lot of extra work.
