WorldSkills Australia’s Try’aSkill is an interactive program that allows visitors to try their hand at various skill and trade areas. The displays are entertaining, informative and offer access to some of the basic skills involved within a range of fields.
WSA’s Try’aSkill programs are held all over Australia and aim to encourage people to appreciate that skill education and training can offer many viable career choices for the future.
The displays seek to motivate school students, young people and others through a ‘hands-on’ experience and give them a taste of some of the skills required in a number of different careers.
Participants can interact with skilled tradespeople whilst seeking information from industry experts, apprentices, teachers, trainers and local business owners about VET pathways.
Many Try’aSkill events are run in conjunction with WSA Regional and National Competitions and careers expos.
The WorldSkills Australia Try’aSkill program has been established to:
- Motivate students and others through a hands-on experience
- Share information about career choices
- Encourage participants to appreciate that skill education and training offer
more choices for the future
