The WorldSkills UK Learning Lab is powered by international best practice making world-class skills development accessible for all, providing a central learning space and resource centre hosting free tools and resources for educators and learners.
We are an independent charity and work with employers, education and governments.
We’re a proud member of WorldSkills, a global movement of over 80 countries. WorldSkills supports young people across the world via competitions-based training, assessment and benchmarking, with members’ national teams ultimately testing their ability to achieve world-class standards in the biennial ‘skills olympics’.
We develop educators, by sharing international best practice, to deliver high-quality training and assessment.
We inspire young people, whatever their background, to choose high-quality apprenticeships and technical education as a prestigious career route
We innovate to help employers by benchmarking with skills systems from across the world to inform policy and practice, ensuring high-quality skills and boosting the UK economy.
The WorldSkills UK Centre of Excellence is an award winning workforce development pilot to transfer insights from global skills systems and world-class practices to equip educators across technical and vocational education and training (TVET) with the knowledge and skills to embed international best practice to advance technical teaching, training and assessment.
