Who We Are

WorldSkills UK is dynamic, results driven charity that wants to change the national conversation about skills and young people. We are a partnership between governments, businesses and education and we exist to accelerate young people's development in work and life.

We are part of a global movement working with young people right across the world. In the UK, we are entering an exciting new phase in our development and have ambitious plans for the future.  WorldSkills UK works with over 100,000 young people a year with the ambition to grow this to 1,000,000 by 2022. We are excited about the potential of young people and skills to drive change in the UK.

We are a small inclusive team that works with a growing network of dedicated professionals and businesses and we are looking for passionate and thoughtful people that will help us develop innovative solutions to the challenge we have set ourselves.
