As a past competitor of WorldSkills UK, we’d love to invite you to become a Skills Champion.
The Skills Champions are a community of WorldSkills UK alumni who are ambassadors for WorldSkills UK. Skills Champions play a key role in our work as we inspire young people from all backgrounds to choose high quality apprenticeships and technical education as prestigious career routes. They proudly represent their skill and sector, the value of apprenticeships and technical education, as well as skill competitions.
Skills Champions receive opportunities to get involved and support our work in a variety of ways; from speaking at key stakeholder events and online events, to running interactive have a go’s at careers fairs across the UK and everything in between. If you are passionate about inspiring other young people, want to challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone and continue your journey with WorldSkills UK, we would love to invite you to express your interest to become a WorldSkills UK Skills Champion.
You truly are inspirational young people who we want to continue to recognise and celebrate for all you have achieved and all you will go on to achieve. This is an exciting opportunity to stay connected and involved with WorldSkills UK and each other, as well as challenge and develop yourself professionally and personally with networking opportunities, speaking engagements and events just to name a few.
Who can be a Skills Champion?
Anyone who has competed or taken part in WorldSkills UK competitions, no matter when this was or where, or if you placed in a competition.
How much commitment is involved?
However much commitment you can manage. We share opportunities and if it works for you great, if not, there’ll be others. We cover your expenses and also will provide training with more detail to follow.
What happens next?
Once you complete the expression of interest form (sent to you via email), I will be in touch via email with next steps and further detail. We are a supportive, positive and open community, so any questions or concerns please get in touch.
