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.
The WorldSkills UK Learning Lab is powered by international best practice making world-class skills development accessible for all, providing a central learning space and resource centre hosting free tools and resources for educators and learners. Access the Learning Lab to embed excellence into your teaching and learning practice.
Our Competition based training programme is designed to help learners develop their personal, professional and technical skills, and will provide educators and trainers with tools, methodologies and resources to embed WorldSkills UK Competition activity within their teaching and learning programmes and help their students prepare for competitions.
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.
