“I am absolutely thrilled to have been highly commended in the World Skills competition for Inclusion and Diversity,” Chantelle said. “It has been such a positive opportunity for our learners to get involved in and showcase their amazing skills.

“It has allowed them to thrive and grow and feel valued members of society, where they can feel confident with growing independence for whatever life brings them. I really look forward to being part of other skills competitions in the future.
