The UK National Final Skills Competition event took place in Greater Manchester in November. Students, apprentices, and employees, usually between 16 and 24, competed for medals in four categories: construction and infrastructure; digital, business and creative; engineering and technology; health, hospitality and lifestyle.

The Welsh competitors' journey began in November 2022 with our own Skills Competition Wales which drew 1,100 young people to compete; 100 Welsh winners moved forward to the UK National Skills Finals. Wales claimed a total of 55 medals (either gold, silver, bronze or highly commended medals of excellence) across a wide range of disciplines.  

In this written statement, I am delighted to announce the list of Welsh winners.
