MCAST Skills Challenge Awards Ceremony 2017


This morning MCAST held an Awards Ceremony for the winners of the MCASTSkills Challenge that was held earlier on in April 2017. During the Awards Ceremony, which was held at the MCAST Students’ House, Paola, winners were awarded medals, while all participants were given official certificates.

Apart from serving as a platform for MCAST students to show off their abilities and talents the MCASTSkills Challenge was also an opportunity for students to present themselves to top industry specialists that assessed them live against pre-defined criteria. This competition acted as an ideal springboard for students towards their chosen career path, as they had the opportunity to flaunt their knowledge and abilities to the public and important industry players.

A big thanks to industry for supporting this event and well done to all the students that participated!!
