Team-building Camp - love bonding with members from the Singapore Team.

Different ways of learning practical skills as the procedures are more in-depth and precise to meet the competition standard. I have become more focused and patient during my work.

Did participating in the skills competitions and training for WorldSkills help you progress in your skill? Please describe.
