Global Skills Challenge Registration 2017

Registration is now open for the 2017 Global Skills Challenge hosted in Newcastle, 2hrs north of Sydney – NSW Australia. Packages are based on 3rd – 9th July 2017 including transfers from Sydney Airport to Newcastle. If you require different dates please list this in other requirements.

Please complete all registrations by 5pm AEST Friday 28th April 2017.

The 2017 Global Skills Challenge is a simulated international competition and an important training exercise for the lead up to the 44th WorldSkills International Competition being held in Abu Dhabi, October 2017. The four-day event will simulate the conditions which will be experienced by Team Australia in Abu Dhabi and provide the Skills Squad with a valuable opportunity to gather as a team and hone their skills against competitors from other WorldSkills member countries. The Global Skills Challenge will provide a fantastic opportunity for people to witness the Skills Squad in action as they prepare for Abu Dhabi.

The 2017 Global Skills Challenge will attempt to replicate the International Competition in the following ways:

  • Competition will be held over 4 days
  • Test projects will be based on those being used in Abu Dhabi (where possible)
  • Materials will be based on those being used in Abu Dhabi (where possible)
  • Competitors will be marked using the updated CIS that will be used in Abu Dhabi

It is important to note that the 2017 Global Skills Challenge is a ‘training exercise’ and as such will not be open to the general public, but visitors and spectators are welcome.
