We influence industry, government, and educators through cooperation and research — building a global platform of skills for all.




Our skills competitions measure excellence, celebrate Champions, and encourage hundreds of thousands of young people to turn their passions into a profession.

Competitions, alongside the WorldSkills Conference, are the main ways that we promote skills globally.



Our Members assist young people to access training and find new jobs. The WorldSkills Standards Specifications are just one of the first-rate tools that we provide to help develop those training systems.



WorldSkills is the global hub of skills. We bring together and influence educators, industry, national governments, and international organizations. We facilitate salient research and provide the best global benchmark for vocational systems.
