WorldSkills UK partners with WorldSkills Europe Members to deliver innovation in TVET



As countries around the world emerge from the economic and social consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, WorldSkills UK has announced that it is working with members of WorldSkills and WorldSkills Europe to leverage international polices and best practice in skills development to support economic recovery in the UK and on a global scale.

WorldSkills UK is seeking to agree formal partnerships with other members internationally to create new and innovative ways for peer-to-peer knowledge exchange, that will enable members to drive excellence in the quality and delivery of TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) on a national and international scale. 

In addition to these partnerships, WorldSkills UK is also hosting a series of Virtual International Pressure Tests, which will include best practice exchanges and training in events in skills including Cyber Security, Chemical Laboratory Technician, IT, and Cooking.

Dr Neil Bentley-Gockmann OBE, Chief Executive, WorldSkills UK said: “In the UK, the government has pledged to deliver a skills-led recovery, and we believe we can support this by leveraging international best practice in skills development and championing higher quality training standards so that more young people and their employers succeed.  

“Working with our partners from across the WorldSkills and WorldSkills Europe membership, we can set a new level of ambition, with our sights on excellence as the standard the next generation should expect from technical education and training, leading the charge towards UK and global recovery and economic growth.”

The largest Virtual International Pressure Test will take place in IT on the 24, 25 April and 1, 2 May and will feature 32 competitors from 24 countries.  WorldSkills UK will also host the Best Practice Exchange in IT on 21 April where WorldSkills Experts from Russia, Sweden and the UK will discuss the latest global trends in IT.
