FE News catch up with Simon Bartley on his first day in his new role as WorldSkills International President. Although he has been in the post for less than a day, he takes time out to chat with us about the importance of skills competitions and how they raise the standards of skills across the globe.

Mr Bartley discusses on his plans for WorldSkills, the ongoing legacy of the competition to improve individual countries skills base and awareness.

Mr Bartley discusses the importance of Skills competition and how the competition raises the perception of vocational skills, he goes onto explain that International competitions enable the subject matter experts from across the World to share best practice and improve teaching of their subject areas - which then enable the subject matter specialist to work together to raise all of the World's skills base through the sharing of best practice and competition.
