WorldSkills is a movement that is changing the lives of young people through skills. It raises the profile of professional skills and develops vocational education by harmonising best practices and standards worldwide through organizing and hosting championships nationally and globally. WorldSkills was established in 1950 and operates in 85 countries.
The WorldSkills championships group the competences into 6 tracks: construction, IT, manufacturing and engineering, transportation and logistics, social and personal services, creative arts and fashion.
WorldSkills acts as a global hub of skills, bringing together and influencing educators, industry, national governments, and international organizations, facilitating salient research and providing the best global benchmark for vocational systems.
WorldSkills competitions measure excellence, celebrate champions, and encourage hundreds of thousands of young people to turn their passions into a profession.
