WorldSkills Australia actively encourages past competitors to provide feedback and advice in order to help shape the future direction of WorldSkills competitions in line with the organisation’s mission and vision. The WorldSkills Australia Youth Forum, which was first held in 2010, brings together past competitors in a creative and interactive environment. Youth Forum delegates use the time to brainstorm and develop new and exciting initiatives that can be implemented to ensure the future livelihood of the organisation.
2013 WorldSkills Australia Youth Forum, Melbourne
The 2013 WorldSkills Australia was held in Melbourne at RMIT University – Brunswick Campus between February 26th and March 1st. Over three days, 20 Youth Forum delegates from all over Australia each representing a broad range of skill and trade backgrounds, came together to share ideas and workshop suggestions in an exciting and stimulating setting.
The overall theme of the 2013 Youth Forum was: “How do we sell WorldSkills Australia?” The delegates came up with an abundance of creative and modern ways to promote WorldSkills Australia’s program of events to key stakeholder groups such as:
- Training Institutes
- Future competitors
The workshop culminated in an inspirational presentation delivered in front of an audience of over 50 key members of the WSA network including, main regional coordinators, trainers, teachers and other interested stakeholders.
The 2013 WorldSkills Australia Youth Forum, Melbourne once again proved to be an invaluable exercise; generating inspiring, innovative ideas and suggestions from the WSA target audience themselves.
