The charity WorldSkills UK champions world-class apprenticeships and technical skills. We do this by engaging young people in skills competitions, delivering experiential careers events, role modelling to challenge stereotypes and using our research to support the apprenticeship agenda.
Our goals are to support business competitiveness, young people’s employability and excellence in standards.
WorldSkills UK brings together WorldSkills UK Skills Competitions, The Skill Show and WorldSkills UK Champions.
WorldSkills UK manages the UK’s entry into the international skills competitions EuroSkills and WorldSkills.

A changing economic landscape and the introduction of new technologies is transforming the construction industry in the UK. The FE sector knows this will have huge implications for skills training and development going forwards, but how can we ensure that we are fully preparing apprentices for these changes and does this mean we should be switching focus away from traditional trades?
