3M is sponsoring a global event to help showcase the next generation of young talent.

The biennial WorldSkills competition is headed to London this year, showcasing the best and brightest of the World’s future talent.

Now in its 41st year, the competition will showcase a whole host of different skills, from construction to IT, and from engineering to manufacturing. 3M will be paying particular attention to those areas of the competition focusing on automotive bodywork and repair.

3M has previously supported the UK entrants in the WorldSkills competition by providing entrants with products and protective clothing for training purposes.

Carla O’ Brien from 3M’s aftermarket division said: “WorldSkills is a great way for the UK’s body shop technicians of the future to compete against the best of the rest from around the world and receive truly international recognition for their efforts. We are delighted to be sponsoring the event and would like to wish the very best of luck to all the participants.
