WorldSkills Australia aims to get Australia’s young people excited about skills and trades

WorldSkills Australia regional competition

The WorldSkills Australia regional competitions are the beginning of a new competition cycle, this time culminating in the WorldSkills International Competition in Lyon 2024.

The regional competition is the beginning of a life-changing experience for Australia’s most gifted, most dedicated trades and skills talent. Regional success opens up a myriad of pathways not available to most – national and international recognition, invaluable mentorship, travel and scholarship opportunities, and an unparalleled level of upskilling in a chosen field.

When you compete in a regional competition, you’re starting a journey that leads to you being the very best in your field.

"The most interesting part for me was seeing how the skills I had learnt in class applied to a real-life scenario. Often, we don’t see the business side when you’re in the classroom, you’re just learning how to attack and how to defend, so it was really cool to be a part of a simulated real-life experience
