We work with our Members, Global Partners, and other organisations to create opportunities for young people around the world.

Skills are instrumental for a sustainable future. Our projects enable next generations to address the challenges of tomorrow through vocational education and training, and entrepreneurship.

With a focus on developing countries and new WorldSkills Members, we provide platforms for sharing knowledge and expertise on skills training.

Project areas

Through our exciting and diverse projects, we cover a wide range of areas to develop and promote skills.


Our projects inspire young people to develop a passion for skills and pursuing excellence beyond WorldSkills Competitions.

Capacity Building

Our network of Members, Partners, and Experts provide support and mentorship across regions, through projects, initiatives, and activities that advance vocational education and training.


We're empowering and inspiring African youth to pursue personal and economic fulfilment through the power of skills.

Delve into the stories of those skilled people that built the world we know today. The museum is located in Shanghai, China in the city’s historic Yangpu district. If you can’t wait until your visit, then explore the zones on our new website.

Measuring our impact
