Who we are

We are part of WorldSkills, a global movement supported by over 80 member countries, which celebrates young people achieving world-class standards in the biennial ‘skills olympics’. As the only skills charity which can bring this global benchmarking back into the UK, we have the unique assets, resources and networks to help raise training standards and improve young people’s technical and soft skills-set and resilient mindset to ever higher standards.
