Welcome to WorldSkills, Mongolia!


We are happy to welcome Mongolia, the 69th and newest Member of WorldSkills!

Mongolia has an operational priority to prepare their workforce based on the labour market demand through professional education and a developed training system. The Mongolian TVET system is focused on becoming demand driven, with an importance placed on improving learning environments through upgrading equipment, workshop construction, and instructional learning materials.

Becoming a Member of WorldSkills will assist Mongolia in gaining the knowledge on best practices of developing, piloting, and implementing competency based training curriculums and standards within their TVET system. It will also help them assess and establish a national qualification framework.
