Bound for Japan

Description

In the first of two special programmes, we follow the achievements of 23 young people chosen to represent Britain in Japan at WorldSkills 2007.

Competition is fierce as the British team is pitched against the world's best practitioners of vocational skills; from bricklaying and joinery to automotive technology and beauty therapy.

The competitors' journey began more than a year ago with team selection events in the Lake District. Now after intensive training it's time to perform on a world stage.

Britain achieved one gold and two silver medals in 2005, will the team do better this time?

Part of the series: Skills Championships
