Excitement mounts as we gear up for the first regional heat of the HIP Female Skills Competition 2024, which kicks off tomorrow, 27th February.

Over the next few weeks, HIP will be travelling to three regional locations in search of the best upcoming talent within our industry. In each location, twelve learners will battle it out in a live practical test. A winner and runner-up will be chosen from each heat to go through to the Grand Final in April.

2024 Regional Heats Schedule:

- South: Bath College, Tuesday 27th February
- Midlands: Leicester College, Tuesday 5th March
- North: Kirklees College, Thursday 7th March

The competition is proudly supported by leading industry names, including Grohe (Headline Sponsor), Aalberts IPS, CT1, Grundfos, Kingspan, Milwaukee, Stelrad, Viessmann, WD-40, Wolseley Plumb & Parts, Snickers, Talon, The Worshipful Company of Plumbers, Yorkshire Copper Tube, Fix Radio and the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE).

For a second year running, Jerry Whiteley from CIPHE will be the head judge of the competition, which stands as a great testament to the growing recognition and support for female professionals in the trade.

Last year’s winner Tiffany Baker from Group Llandrillo Menai, said: “It’s definitely been a good experience and built my confidence.”
