WorldSkills UK

WorldSkills is the largest skills competition in the world, held biennially in cities around the globe.


WorldSkills UK Live

WorldSkills UK Live, formerly the Skills Show, took place from 15th-17th November 2018 at the NEC in Birmingham. Organised by WorldSkills UK, it is a catalyst for economic growth, which increases public recognition, quality and take-up of vocational skills.

AoC is central to the UK partnership and is committed to the legacy. We aim to:
  • drive increased college engagement in skills competitions 
  • encourage collaboration across agencies including the Association of Employers and Learning Providers
  • work to promote a sector-led approach, shaping skills competitions' activity and WorldSkills UK Live
  • strive to ensure that competitions and WorldSkills UK Live are accessible to all
