Get involved - employers

Training the next generation of young workers has become of paramount importance as the UK’s skills gap widens

Download our case studies: The Case for Skills Competitions: Employers

If the UK is to compete internationally and attract global investment, the nation’s workforce will need to be trained to international standards. Each competition presents a series of tests, designed by industry experts, which focus on the highest UK and International standards.

 Apprentices from across the country register with WorldSkills UK, for free, to compete against other like-minded individuals in their specialist skill.

WorldSkills UK Competitions will:

  • Boost your long term business performance
  • Teach your apprentice to work efficiently under pressure
  • Highlight your organisations commitment to raising standards in work based learning.
  • Raise your apprentice’s standards to an international level
  • Transform your apprentice’s skill set

This is why businesses return to WorldSkills UK time and time again, entering new apprentices with the aim of boosting productivity and empowering the next generation of skilled workers.

I’d recommend any employer get involved, as our apprentices learn a lot from WorldSkills, and develop greatly in terms of character, technical ability and discipline. They also really appreciate our support and value working here – it keeps them happy, which is great for us.
