Skills Champions - Competitions Cycle

As Skills Champions, you have the ability to inspire the next generation of UK champions and pave the way for someone’s bright future. We would be over the moon if you could help us get more people to register for the 2020 Competitions Cycle by encouraging, inspiring and informing young hopefuls about the benefits of Competitions.

Businesses, colleges, schools and training providers will be able to register their competitors via the WorldSkills UK website from 1 March, and registration will close on 5 April.

We are launching a social media campaign to run in conjunction with this and throughout the campaign we would like to shout about you and your experiences of taking part in WorldSkills UK Competitions!

How You Can Get Involved


Record a short 30 second video on your phone, answering the following questions.

  1. Name, Profession, What Skills Competition you entered and what you achieved
  2. Why would you recommend entering into a skills event?
  3. How have Skills Competitions benefitted you?
  4. Say: ‘Register with WorldSkills UK today at’ 

If possible, incorporate items that relate to your profession into the video, feel free to be creative!
