One School One Country

Our cultural exchange programme

One School One Country is a programme held in conjunction with the WorldSkills Competition. Schools in the Host country are matched with a WorldSkills Member country or region. In class, students learn about the values, traditions and culture of the WorldSkills Member that they have adopted, as well as information about the skilled careers represented at the Competition. Finally students and Competitors meet on the day of the Opening Ceremony when students welcome the Competitors at their schools.

One School One Country was developed in 2007 by the Competition Organizers for WorldSkills Shizuoka 2007. They wanted a way for the local schools to get involved in the Competition but also experience a unique cultural exchange opportunity.
