Hong Kong vocational students reap rewards of WorldSkills Competition as platform to showcase talents, win medals

By ITS Education Asia

Li Kam-hung never imagined that his childhood fascination with cars would one day lead him to a job and first prize in a global competition.

The 20-year-old came out on top in the Sustainable Practice Award for car painting at the WorldSkills Competition — a biennial championship of vocational skills — in Kazan, Russia, last August.

Hong Kong sent a team of 24 to the tournament, which attracted more than 1,300 competitors from more than 60 countries and regions.

Apart from Li, 13 others brought home a total of 11 Medallions for Excellence in skills ranging from hairdressing to electrical installations. Among them were Ben Law Siu-leung and his teammate, Ricky Lee Wai-kit, both 21, who won a Medallion for Excellence for mobile robotics.

Congratulations from all of us here at ChalkFace to those who took part.
