“The awards demonstrate our commitment to helping young people of all backgrounds to get the best start in work and life. Through the celebration of the organisations and individuals that are committed to mainstream Equity, Diversity and Inclusion we hope to provide a catalyst to see real change and inspire others from all backgrounds. Collectively, this work across the sector will develop a more competitive skills base, ensuring we can support UK ambitions for economic growth and prosperity, thereby helping all young people to succeed.”

The winners of the 2024 WorldSkills UK EDI Heroes Awards have been unveiled in a prestigious ceremony held at the Houses of Parliament.

For the first time since the awards began in 2019, an award ceremony was held in person, and it was a fantastic opportunity for finalists and guests to come together in person to celebrate.

Thank you to our main sponsors, Skills and Education Group, and the University Vocational Awards Council (UVAC), along with our individual award sponsors.
