Skills competitions, experiential and digital careers advice; and mindset and productivity training.
WorldSkills UK is an accelerator for young people in the start-up phase of their careers. This means we inspire more young people to take up apprenticeships and technical education; we champion their success, creating world-class role models from all backgrounds; and we accelerate their personal and professional development.
We are an independent organisation that works with a network of experts from education and industry who have joined forces to help the UK go further, faster.
WorldSkills UK programmes of activity:
WorldSkills UK brings together young people to compete to be the best in their chosen skill – at a regional, and international levels. Skills competitions equip students and apprentices with lifelong, world-class skills, which enables us to showcase the UK talent and benchmark employability skills with those from around the world. Working with governments, employers and educators we take this international leaning and use it to ensure more young people are equipped with the right skills to help UK businesses better compete globally.
We help young people think about their options by delivering a number of tailored experiential careers events and advice. These, including WorldSkills UK LIVE, bring together the UK’s leading employers, colleges and training providers to help young people experience many careers in one place, raising their aspirations for getting the best start in work and life.
Drawing on our know-how in fast-tracking the development of young people’s skill set and mindset through our work on experiential careers advice and skills competitions, we are developing a suite of paid-for products and services for the business and education sector.
