Tiffany Baker, winner of the HIP Female Skills competition 2023

First HIP Female Skills winner announced

Tiffany Baker is the first winner of the new HIP Female Skills competition. She was crowned after two regional competitions to find the best up-and-coming industry talent. Level 2 and 3 female plumbing and heating learners of all ages, from colleges nationwide, competed in a live practical installation to go forward to the grand final.

At the final, held at Loughborough College, six finalists battled it out, giving the judges a tough time marking because of the high standards. Tiffany, from Group Llandrillo Menai, was judged to be the HIP Female Skills Winner 2023, with Adelaide Ruddy from Bath College as runner-up.

Zoë Tanner, managing director of HIP, says: “A massive congratulations to all who took part. You should be extremely proud of yourselves. It has been an absolute honour to see the next generation of female plumbers showing off their skills.”

HIP, organisers of the HIP Learner of the Year competition, launched its first ever Female Skills Competition this year, with the goal to build confidence and advocate skills development along with getting the very best people into the industry, regardless of gender.
