World Skills

WorldSkills Competition - Olympics Of Skills

WorldSkills rose out of the ruins of the Second World War, which devastated the economies of Europe and created a huge skills shortage that threatened a new economic depression in the year 1946 - Skills help build nations.

Some took this challenge as an opportunity to introduce young people to the world of vocational skills. Francisco Albert Vidal was charged with creating a skill contest for the youth of Spain and Portugal. Madrid 1950 was a modest event by today’s standards, but an international movement was born!

The WorldSkills Competition’s main legacy is promoting professional education as one of the main tools for socio-economic development.

WorldSkills Vision..

WorldSkills Mission..

WorldSkills:

WorldSkills Competition is a biennial event which attracts more than 1,300 competitors from over 60 countries. There are competitions in 56 skills across a wide range of industries — from joinery to floristry; hairdressing to electronics; and autobody repair to bakery. The competitors represent the best of their peers and are selected from skills competitions that are held in WorldSkills member countries and regions, for the chance to win a prestigious medal in their chosen skills.

One of the legacies of WorldSkills Competitions is the increased visibility of skilled professional education as one of the tools of socio-economic transformation.

The Competition also provides leaders in Industry, Government, and Education with the opportunity to exchange information and best practices regarding industry and professional education. New ideas and processes inspire school-aged youth to dedicate themselves to technical and technological careers and build a better future. WorldSkills Competition is an amazing platform for the industry to benchmark the skill standards and proficiency of our existing workforces.
