We develop excellence in people by testing and assessing their skills and knowledge against their peers through our national and international competitions programmes, improving confidence and potential. To embark on this unique development journey the first step is to join our national competitions programme.
We have unique insight into the training and employability skills of apprentices and students from over 80 countries and regions. Benchmarking nationally and internationally enables us to embed high-quality standards of excellence back into technical and vocational education and training. Access the Skills Development Hub to embed excellence into your teaching and learning practice.
Our Technical Masterclasses are designed to introduce students and apprentices to techniques and practices we use with our Squad and Team UK as they prepare for international competition.
The modules are designed for students and apprentices to introduce the principles of lean to their learning and development and ultimately improve how they perform in carrying out a task or work in a streamlined and efficient manner.
A series of technical skills resources to enhance and add value to a learner’s curriculum study programme at level 2. The resources will enhance and excel the learner’s employability and technical skills development.
Sharing international best practice in skills development
Working with partners from across WorldSkills, we want to share global best practice in skills development. By creating an exchange of knowledge and skills through people, organisations and governments we can drive innovation and excellence in the quality and delivery of technical and vocational education and training, nationally and internationally, to help boost inclusive economic growth.
Our Virtual International Pressure Tests are for young people and experts preparing for international competitions to collaboratively train or compete alongside each other. They will enable us to benchmark our technical skills and formally capture global insights into standards and training approaches to champion vocational education and training in the UK.
