WorldSkills is the global hub for skills excellence and development and we use the knowledge gained from our participation and engagement to drive the greatest skills education from across the world into UK practice.
What are the next international competitions?
WorldSkills Shanghai 2022
This year’s WorldSkills competition in Shanghai, scheduled for October, was cancelled due to the pandemic. In its place, there will be the WorldSkills Competition 2022 Special Edition, where 61 finals will take place in 15 countries with over 1,000 competitors. The multi-country international skills competition replaces the traditional biennial event usually held in one city.
Team UK will be training hard with the aim of maintaining a top ten position in the medal table, achieved in EuroSkills Budapest in 2018.
Competing in WorldSkills provides us with rich insights into the skills systems and practices to develop excellence in young people, in 80 different countries and regions. The valuable lessons we draw from benchmarking our performance is invaluable and through the Centre of Excellence, we will transfer these lessons in pursuit of mainstreaming excellence across technical and vocational education.
