Excellence at work
WorldSkills UK is a four nations partnership between education, industry and UK governments. It is a world-class skills network acting as a catalyst for:
• raising standards, through international benchmarking and professional development
• championing future skills, through analysis of rapidly changing economic demand
• empowering young people, from all backgrounds, through competitions-based training and careers advocacy.
We are working to help the UK become a ‘skills economy’, boosting the prestige of technical and professional education by embedding world-class training standards across the UK to help drive investment, jobs and economic growth.
We’re a proud member of WorldSkills, a global movement of over 80 countries. WorldSkills supports young people across the world via competitions-based training, assessment and benchmarking, with members’ national teams ultimately testing their ability to achieve world-class standards in the biennial ‘skills olympics’. The insights we gain from training as part of this global network enables us to embed world-class training standards across the UK to help drive investment, jobs and economic growth.
