Why does the UK compete internationally?

Responsible for managing the UK’s entry into international skills competitions, WorldSkills UK has unique insight into the training and employability skills of apprentices and learners from over 72 countries and regions.

Using this insight, WorldSkills UK has devised an accelerated development programme that inspires apprentices, learners and employers to be ambitious in their pursuit of skills to the highest level.  This means more young people are being equipped with the right skills to help UK businesses better compete globally.
