Through their work with the WorldSkills UK Centre of Excellence programme, our High-Performance Skills Coaches have captured learnings from international best practice and have developed a 4-hour CPD workshop to coach and mentor educators who can then use these practices in the classroom with their learners, ensuring they perform to higher standards of excellence in their skills.
These CPD workshops are open to institutions who are not already part of the Centre of Excellence programme to provide an introduction into the methodologies and practices we use at WorldSkills UK to train young people to excellence.
