WorldSkills UK is an independent charity and a partnership between employers, education and governments. Together, we are using international best practice to raise standards in apprenticeships and technical education so more young people and employers succeed.
As an employer we are committed to creating a truly inclusive, diverse and collaborative working environment starting at the beginning of our employee lifecycle, from the moment we open a recruitment process. We strive to recruit, develop and retain a talented, dedicated, enthusiastic and supportive workforce that is truly representative of our society as a whole.
At WorldSkills UK we value the strength of a diverse and inclusive UK workforce, and believe in creating greater opportunities for everyone to fulfil their potential regardless of age, religion or belief, race, gender reassignment, disability, sex, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership or pregnancy and maternity status.
Innovate - We innovate to help employers by benchmarking with skills systems from across the world to inform policy and practice, ensuring high-quality skills and boosting the UK economy.
Develop - We develop educators, by sharing international best practice, to deliver high quality training and assessment.
Inspire - We inspire young people, whatever their background, to choose high-quality apprenticeships and technical education as prestigious career routes.
Diversity & Inclusion
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is underpinned by three main reasons:
as a charity that exists to help millions of young people through our career’s advice and skills competitions, we are committed to honouring our duty to ensure we are as inclusive as possible.
the economic case for greater diversity is clear, and we are committed to broadening the pool of young people who are well prepared for working life and helping give our employer partners more choice when recruiting and to create higher performing workplaces.
as the UK’s representative in the international WorldSkills movement, we are committed to honouring our duty to send a team of young people to international skills competitions who are truly representative of young people from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - and who in turn can become role models for future generations
