WorldSkills UK Champions are members of a growing network of inspiring young professionals who have competed in a WorldSkills UK Competitions National Final. Many Champions have gone on to represent the UK internationally as part of Squad and Team UK.
Skills Champions are now out working in industry and act as inspirational role models for future generations of apprentices and young people.
Skills Champions support the work of WorldSkills UK by:
- Promoting the benefits of apprenticeships and technical skills to young people by visiting schools, speaking at careers events and hosting talks at WorldSkills UK LIVE (formerly the The Skills Show).
- Training Squad and Team UK for international skills competitions.
- Supporting Competition Organising Partners in the delivery of WorldSkills UK Competitions.
- Acting as spokespeople, on behalf of WorldSkills UK, sharing their competition experiences and career journeys.
