Learners produce outstanding work for spook-tacular Halloween competition #VTCTTrickOrTreat

For our Halloween competition this year, we called on our learners to use their creative juices and create Halloween-inspired creations.

With submissions ranging from eerie to fantastical, we are overwhelmed by the quality, creativity and innovation shown by our iTEC & VTCT learners.

#VTCTTrickOrTreat invited learners to highlight their incredible skills for a chance to win a £40 BeautyBay or Amazon voucher. The competition began on October 1st and has seen over 200 fantastic entries pouring in.

To enter, we asked learners to post a photo of their creations on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and follow us, tag us and use the hashtag #VTCTTrickOrTreat. Not only does this allow learners to demonstrate the impressive skills that they have cultivated at our innovative iTEC & VTCT centres, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to get work shared across our platforms.

Scroll on to see some of the fantastic Halloween competition submissions we have received from learners, and find out who the winner is!
