National Competitions in the Netherlands!

On the 17th of January 2017, the SKILLS+ National Competitions in the categories green jobs and hospitality (incl. catering) took place in Burgh-Haamstede. Upon arrival, the participants, b15995275_1638027966501742_8369538117323907392_ouddies and judges were treated to a nice lunch after which everyone had some time to calm their nerves and get acquainted with their workplaces.

It was a neck and neck race for both categories as all teams performed at such a high level and were able to showcase their talents in front of family members, job coaches, the alderman of the local city council and other visitors of the event attended by over 50 people.

Judges had a hard time deciding who won as the scores were quite close, but of course there are always teams that performed slightly better.

The proud winner of the category hospitality (incl. catering) was Spelderholt Academie while the winne15994611_1638029083168297_5220343947228193978_or of the category green jobs was de Zuidhoek.

The event was covered by written press, radio and online tv (please find the links below plus attachments).

By winning the national competitions they have qualified to compete in the European Competitions, which will be held on the 16th of March 2017 in the RAI in Amsterdam.
