To celebrate today’s United Nations World Youth Skills Day we are excited to be taking part in a global campaign called #WhatsYourSkill. The campaign is running throughout the member countries of WorldSkills, the global movement which raises the profile and recognition of skilled people and shows how important skills are in achieving economic growth.

The aim of the campaign is to increase exposure for the WorldSkills movement to youth audiences and encourage young people to think about, share, and celebrate their skills and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. A key element is to build a profile for WorldSkills’ TikTok presence and we have launched our own TikTok channel: @worldskillsuk. This will build a foundation for ongoing skills content following World Youth Skills Day that will show young people demonstrating skills in ways that their peers find appealing.

To celebrate World Youth Skills Day, young people around the world are invited to show off their skill, explain what makes them skilled, demonstrate their skill and celebrate their success. Our Skills Champions and Squad UK members have been getting involved by creating video content demonstrating their unique skills, which has been shared on our social media channels.

Overall, this global movement will lead to the reimagining of youth skills for both the present and future in line with employers’ changing needs. Attaining a skill often involves challenges and so we want to celebrate resilience and innovation in overcoming these to encourage many more young people to aim higher in their ambitions for their career.
