Rubi UK and Ireland provides valuable support to WorldSkills UK’s trainees

August 2018

The UK’s most talented young apprentices – battling to represent their country - are receiving invaluable help from Rubi UK and Ireland.

The company, which makes professional tiling tools, has lent its support to WorldSkills UK, the organisation that powers the most exacting and prestigious regional, national, and international competition for young skilled people.

Rubi UK and Ireland has sponsored and supplied resources, such as tiling tools and clothing, to support the training of Mark Scott and Daniel McBurney who are currently aiming to represent the UK in Wall and Floor Tiling at the forthcoming WorldSkills Kazan 2019.

Dr Neil Bentley, CEO of WorldSkills UK, said: “Thank you Rubi UK and Ireland for your invaluable support.  Skills are the lifeblood of UK business – and this partnership will play an important role helping to nurture the very best talented young people to represent the UK in WorldSkills, and make them iconic for others to follow in their footsteps.”

Vladimir Hoyos, Managing Director of Rubi UK, said: “Promoting tiling skills in talented young trades people is one of our main goals in the UK and Ireland; this partnership will allow them to benefit from using the latest tiling tools and equipment supplied by Rubi – the market leader in tiling tools.  Importantly this will give them extra confidence when they eventually go to represent the UK in all the competitions and ultimately into the work place.”

Scott and McBurney are being trained for the WorldSkills Competition by Paul Doran, a lecturer at Southern Regional College, Northern Ireland.  As part of the training programme, Mark Scott will represented the UK at EuroSkills Budapest 2018 this September.
