Following his phenomenal success in 2014 in

the Euroskills competition in France, Reece

Taylor, an apprentice in fabrication and

welding, went on to represent his country,

as well as Derwentside College, and his

employer Dyer Engineering, at the WorldSkills

competition in São Paulo, Brazil in August

2015. Reece was the only student selected

from the UK to represent his country in the skills

area of Welding, where he went on to win a

Medallion of Excellence placing him in the

top 10% of all world competitors. Following

on from this tremendous success, Reece

ended the year by winning the prestigious,

national Association of Colleges Student of

the Year for 2015. Reece was selected from 82

nationwide nominations of an exceptionally

high standard.

World Class Success for Derwentside College Student

The support and training from staff at

Derwentside College and my employer,

Dyer Engineering, helped me to the final stage

of the competition. Without this encouragement

throughout my apprenticeship, I wouldn’t be

where I am today
