Ninety-four young people across 27 different skills will begin an 18-month intensive training programme, to try and prove they have what it takes to compete against the very best of the rest of the world, as part of the ‘skills olympics’ in Lyon in September 2024.
The finals in Lyon, run by WorldSkills International, will test young people’s skills in a host of technical disciplines and feature competitors and expert coaches from over 80 nations.
Having excelled in regional and national competitions, squad members will now be guided through specialist training by a team of highly skilled industry experts, former medal winners and performance coaches. This will help them prepare for the pressure of competing at international level.
The final team to represent the UK on the international stage will be announced in the spring of 2024.
