WorldSkills Europe is a non-profit member organisation that promotes vocational, technological and service oriented education and training across Europe.
We promote skilled careers in 31 Member countries, working with youth, educators, governments, and industries to help prepare the workforce and talent of today for the jobs of the future.
We bring together young people, industries, and educators to give young people the chance to compete, experience, and learn how to become the best in their skill of choice.
From the traditional trades to multi-skilled technology careers in the industry and service sectors, supported by partners, industries, governments, volunteers, and educational institutions, WorldSkills Europe is a movement of change that is making a direct impact on raising the level of skills throughout Europe.
Skills are the foundation of modern life. They are the driving force behind successful careers and companies, thriving industries and economies. Skills change lives.
