The WorldSkills Australia regional competitions are the beginning of a new competition cycle, this time culminating in the WorldSkills International Competition in Lyon 2024.

But more than that, a regional competition is the beginning of a lifechanging experience for Australia’s most gifted, most dedicated trades and skills talent. Regional success opens up myriad pathways not available to most – national and international recognition, invaluable mentorship, travel and scholarship opportunities and an unparalleled level of skilling up in their chosen field.

When you compete in a regional competition, you’re starting a journey that leads to you being the very best in your field.

This report summarises key findings from online surveys conducted with multiple respondent groups at the WorldSkills Australia National Skills Championships held in person in Western Australia and remotely in New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, South Australia and Victoria in the third and fourth quarter of 2021.

WorldSkills Australia intends to continue collecting data from regional, national and international competitions in coming months and years, which will add to WorldSkills Australia’s growing database and enable comparison of results from one iteration to the next. This comparison will provide further inputs to analyse the efficacy of WorldSkills Australia’s continuous improvement activities and new initiatives, while providing valuable feedback to others in the skills ecosystem.
