The WorldSkills UK Productivity Lab

Using international insights to drive UK productivity

WorldSkills UK has been benchmarking internationally and honing our training methods for many years. To ensure our work adds value to the whole UK Further Education (FE) sector, we have created the WorldSkills UK Productivity Lab – helping us mainstream world-class skills excellence across the UK.

Through the Productivity Lab, we will be conducting research and sharing best practice from our outstanding partners across the worlds of business, government and education.

We will develop and share our methodology for becoming world-class, while delivering insights into how other countries in the WorldSkills global network are developing their skills systems to meet their economic needs and boost their competitiveness.
