KnowledgePoint supplies and advises training providers to help them better support their students. They also developed and organised the WorldSkills UK Building Information Modelling Competition – helping young people master this highly sought-after skill.
As a leading provider of training materials and support, KnowledgePoint is passionate about helping students to succeed. They provide transferable skills that can be used in any digital environment, teaching the next generation core competencies to succeed as the world of work changes.
To help support this aim, KnowledgePoint was responsible for organising the WorldSkills UK Building Information Modelling (BIM) competition. BIM is a vital process used in the engineering and construction industries to create 3D and 4D representations of structures and projects. These visual models are used to make key decisions, reducing safety risks and increasing programme efficiency.
At the cutting-edge of industry, BIM is a key skill for young people looking to begin a career in these sectors. The BIM competition focuses on teaching competitors the core skills needed to kick-start their career journeys.
The BIM competition ran for the first time in 2018 and is now available for students across the UK. Focusing on this important digital skill helps ensure WorldSkills UK Competitions are relevant to business needs and gives young people a real taste of working life.
Championing industry-standard skills worldwide
For KnowledgePoint, organising the WorldSkills UK BIM Competition helped to share their passion for digital skills and ensure that the organisation could support even more young people in their careers. Featured at WorldSkills Kazan 2019 for the first time, the competition has been built to ensure that young people from all countries are work-ready from the moment they compete. The marking criteria is designed to give them the knowledge, practical skills and resilience they need to succeed in industry.
