WorldSkills UK Wales - International Competitor Support
Our involvement in WorldSkills competitions
The Inspiring Skills Excellence in Wales project offers a supportive infrastructure for Welsh competitors competing at a National and International level.
The funding provides support for the development of competitors who have the appropriate age profile, whilst aligning activities to WorldSkills UK and facilitating participation in international competitions. It places Wales in a position to increase the number of competitors for selection to Team UK for EuroSkills and the international WorldSkills events.
The project identifies and focuses efforts on the development of the technical skills and associated competitions the Welsh workforce requires in order to support the vision of increasing Wales’ GDP, engaging employers throughout.
The project also establishes a culture across colleges and training providers that delivers more than simply qualifications – it will develop skills that are of world-class parity, with experiences that build the confidence and life skills of individuals. This drive will raise standards and support the creation of a larger pool of highly talented individuals. Improvements in performance will be bench-marked against World leaders in skills development.
Supporting the development of competitors in Wales is a team of Sector Champions who contribute to the well-being of Team Wales, and support the competitors training needs to increase medal winning success.
