A WIMBLINGTON motor vehicle body paint student excelled at a prestigious skills competition.
College of West Anglia Isle Campus student Callum Johnson, 17, came fourth out of more than 50 competitors in the regional heats of the WorldSkills UK competition.
He is waiting to hear if he has made it through to the national finals.
The competition included tasks such as removing paint, marking out and replacing vehicle body parts, preparing vehicle surfaces, treating the vehicle with protection chemicals, applying prime coats and removing rust.
Bob Whalley, Callum’s tutor and mentor, said: “This was the first time the motor vehicle paint and body department entered a WorldSkills competition and staff and fellow students are so proud of what Callum has achieved.”
