For organisations, students or apprentices entering National Competitions

What does this mean for the young people registered in this year’s competition who would have otherwise had a chance to compete for a place in Squad for WorldSkills Lyon 2023?

We are reviewing our selection guidelines for Squad UK (leading to WorldSkills Lyon 2023) to ensure we can provide equal access and opportunity for the young people engaging in the national competitions in 2021.  We will be able to communicate and share the revised guidelines by August 2020.

Will those who registered for this year's competitions automatically be entered into next years competitions?

No, we cannot transfer this year's registrations to next year but we very much welcome all those who registered this year to register for next years competitions if they are eligible, we will send registration details once available. 

 

Will participants who have completed the passive and qualifier stages get recognition for their performance?

WSUK encourage recognition for participation at every stage in the competition cycle. We recognise the commitment and dedication of all those that have taken part in our passive and qualifier stages and we will be issuing them with a Certificate of Participation to reflect their learning. In addition to this, each competitor should receive detailed feedback of their performance which can be used for future development. 

Now that this year's competitions have been cancelled, are you planning to provide any additional support to those that registered?

Although we will not be running the national cycle, we will continue to work with all the competitors who registered to provide them with skills and mindset development that will ensure that while they are not able to compete as first planned, they will still receive significant value from their engagement in WorldSkills UK activities. As a first step, we will be running a webinar on Employability and Wellbeing on Tuesday 21st July, this activity will be supported by our performance coaches and our partner, Youth Employment UK. Please share this link with your competitors and encourage them to take part.
