WorldSkills Australia

WorldSkills Australia is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting skills excellence through competitions and programs that support vocational education and training.

Organisation Overview

At WorldSkills Australia, we want one thing: for young Australians to have access to vocational education and training that measures up on an international stage.

Why? Because we know that skills and trades are critical for building thriving economies, productive communities and confident young members of society. We know that skills excellence opens up career pathways and opportunities for our young people. And we know that skills and trades shape the world around us.

Our main way we support skills excellence in Australia is through our skills competitions – which we’ve been running for over 40 years. Skill competitions happen at a regional, national and international level, and allow young people to benchmark their skill level against their peers.

Competitors who do well at a regional competition are invited to compete at the national championships, where tens of thousands of spectators watch Australia’s best trades and skills talent compete. From there, you may even be asked to join the Skills Squad, where you’ll have the opportunity to travel internationally and test yourself against the best trades and skills talent in the world.

Competing in a WorldSkills competition opens up pathways you never even thought possible. Get started on your journey today.
