Isla McLarty, beauty therapy student at City of Glasgow College, joins 18 other British apprentices to make up Team UK at EuroSkills Gothenburg 2016.

This year's event will be held from 1-3 December in Gothenburg, Sweden. It brings together Europe's best apprentices under the age of 25 to compete in more than 35 different skill areas, from visual merchandising and window dressing to stonemasonry and beauty therapy.

They will aim to better the haul of three gold medals, six silver medals and three medallions for excellence that Team UK achieved at the most recent EuroSkills competition in 2014.

This year’s competitors will go on to compete for a place in the team that will represent the UK at WorldSkills  in Abu Dhabi 2017.
