All will go head to head at Leeds College of Building on 14th-16th September in a challenging practical task spanning the three days, in the quest to be crowned SkillElectric champion.

SkillElectric is organised by SummitSkills, the Sector Skills Council for building services engineering.

‘Having the competition held in the same hall as its partner events this year will really add to the excitement and atmosphere for the competitors,’ said Neil Collishaw of SummitSkills. We’re looking for someone who can deliver a high quality of work precisely to specification and within timescales; we wish all finalists the best of luck.’
