Selecting Team UK 2019

Selecting Team UK 2019

We’re giving young students and apprentices the opportunity of a lifetime through technical education and WorldSkills International Competitions.

WorldSkills UK brings together the UK’s brightest and best students and apprentices, each competing to be crowned National and International Champion in their chosen skill. This year, our Team UK will be heading to Kazan, Russia, to compete in the prestigious Skills Olympics. In National Apprentice Week (from 4 – 7) March, we are holding a series of selection events that will see a Squad of around 100 hopefuls compete for their chance to join the 30-strong international team.

Taking place at a range of colleges and Universities across the UK, these events will combine the excitement of high-level skills Competitions with live, interactive skills demonstrations and inspirational careers events.

As we choose the members of Team UK who will represent their country at WorldSkills Kazan 2019, students and members of the public can also join us to explore the life-changing potential of technical education.
