Florist Victoria Richards (pictured on the left) will be representing the UK at WorldSkills London 2011. She works for Herbarium Florist in the West Midlands and, after a tough four-day selection competition, she was chosen as our representative.
WorldSkills will take place at ExCeL from October 5th-8th. Victoria – who is just 22 – will be competing against florists from all over the world and is now in training to prepare for the event and the pressure that comes with it.
Victoria said: “It is a huge honour to have been selected to represent the UK at WorldSkills London 2011. I hope this opportunity will allow me to showcase how vocational training can lead to successful employment and career opportunities.
“I know the next few months will be tough as I will be in training for the event, but I really hope the whole of the country gets behind Team UK for WorldSkills London 2011 like they do our sporting teams.”
Congratulations to Victoria and good luck at the competition!
