About the role

The key purpose of the Training Manager role is to develop and ensure successful delivery of individualised  training programs for UK competitors that result in medals in international competition. The WorldSkills UK Talent Development Programme combines three elements: technical mastery of the skill; development of  a growth mindset and perfecting what we like to call ‘competition craft’.
