Euroskills 2016, held in Gothenburg, saw around 500 young people, aged 18 to 25, from 28 European countries competing in 44 different skill areas – from stonemasonry to beauty therapy – to be crowned as best in Europe at their trade.
Two Scottish students who joined the 19 in “Team UK” won Medallions of Excellence in their specialisms – Isla McLarty, 19, from City of Glasgow College in Beauty Therapy, and Betsy Crosbie, 20, from New College Lanarkshire, the only female competitor in her area of Mechanical Engineering CAD.
The UK came 7th out of 28 with two gold, one silver, two bronze and eight medallions from a team of only 19.
