Skills Competition Evaluation Project
WorldSkills UK Competitions have been creating excitement and passion for learning in young people for 65 years. Two hundred and fifty five WorldSkills UK competitors were surveyed as part of this project. This covered those who had participated in local, regional, national and international skills competitions. WorldSkills UK brings together apprentices and young people from across the UK to compete to be the best in their chosen skill – first in national competitions and then as members of Team UK in international skills competitions. Local competition activities run internally by colleges, training providers and businesses enable organisations to identify their best apprentices and students to register for the national competition cycle. The diagram on the left demonstrates the progress young people may make from entering a local skills competition to participating in the international skills competition.
