Talented Networking Student Wins Regional World Skills Competition For Second Year RunningPrint Page
Luke Saunders, 18, from Darlington has won the Regional World Skills competition in Networking & Infrastructure for the second year running.
The Darlington College student is currently studying on a Level 3 IT Networking & System Support course before heading to Birmingham University in the autumn to do an Advanced Networking Degree.
Luke competed against IT Students from across the region to win the World Skills heat and hopes he has secured enough points to win through to the finals later this year.
“The competition was a tough one. The level of skill and knowledge required was above what we study at college, but I enjoyed the event and was able to use all the skills I have learned at the college to get through,” he said.
Darlington College tutor Wayne Hall said Luke was an exceptionally talented student whose ability had shone through during the competition.
“Luke is an ambitious, bright and skilful student who has been a credit to the college and to himself,” he said.
Luke has set his sights on being in the top one per cent of Cisco networking experts in the world!
