Harry Field

Growing up, Harrison had a natural urge to create things and could always be found making ad-hoc sculptures and structures with whatever materials he could get his hands on. So, when Harrison left school at the end of year 10 to begin his training as a metal fabricator, his friends and family knew it would be a great fit and one that he’d thrive in.

Since starting down that career path, Harrison has already notched up several achievements, including winning Gold at the 2023 Nationals and being named Young Tradesperson of the Year at the 2023 New South Wales and ACT Welding Excellence Awards. Harrison’s performance has already inspired his sister, who is currently completing a fitting and machining apprentice.

When not training under his mentor, Harrison can be found racing his car around the track or on the soccer pitch – two sports in which he’s achieved significant successes. Harrison hopes his competitive mindset and focus, along with his ability to learn from mistakes and remain calm during the heat of competition, will help him give his best performance while in Lyon.

“One of my favourite parts of the WorldSkills journey has been getting to meet new people within the industry and see the little differences in how they tackle the same problems. It’s been really rewarding to share how I do things too.”
