Confirming that WorldSkills UK Competitions are taking place this year, Dee Aylett-Smith, Head of National Competitions and Careers, WorldSkills UK said:
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce that WorldSkills UK Competitions will be taking place this year and we can confirm that registration to participate will be open from 19 April – 14 May 2021. We can also confirm that National Qualifiers will take place from 24 May – 16 July 2021.
“We have been working hard with our Competition Organising Partners to ensure that competitions can still be delivered safely and effectively, with all competitions being delivered and assessed in a Covid secure way.
“As each competition is different we will be communicating information about how competitions will be delivered and assessed on the webpage for each skill once it has been confirmed, so please do check our website for the latest information. In the meantime, we recommend you start looking at the pre-competition guide, and register your interest in taking part so you can be alerted about any updates.
“We are proud of the positive impact that our skills development programmes have on our competitors’ technical, employability and mindset skills and we are looking forward to engaging as many young people as possible, from all backgrounds, with this year’s cycle.”
