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.

New @LearnWorkUK and @worldskillsuk report highlights a potential catastrophic gap in digital skills provision
Britain could be heading for a catastrophic gap in digital skills provision which is already costing the country billions* in lost growth, a leading research group has revealed.
The 47th @WorldSkills Competition will take place 10-15 September 2024
WorldSkills Lyon 2024 is set to take place 10-15 September 2024, following the postponement of the 46th WorldSkills Competition in Shanghai, China, by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. France won the bid to host the 47th WorldSkills Competition at WorldSkills General Assembly 2019 in Kazan, Russia.
We can’t ignore the significant impact the coronavirus pandemic continues to have on education and skills provision in the UK. Even with the much welcome news this week that young people in colleges and other further education providers can return for face-to face teaching from March 8, there is a huge task to be faced in supporting those that have lost out on learning due to the pandemic.
There has been much discussion in Scotland, like all parts of the UK, of the need for skills to be the cornerstone of our economy and valued and celebrated, just as they are in countries such as Germany, France and Russia. It was a key finding of the recent Cumberford-Little report and has taken on a greater importance as we work to manage the social and economic consequences of the pandemic.
@WorldskillsUK last week hosted its first ever International Skills Summit bringing together high-profile speakers from UK governments, education and business to promote the importance of delivering skills excellence to build back better.
