Thank you for helping the WorldSkills Australia National Championships become a reality! image

In what is an extremely challenging time to organise events, we’re thrilled that our WorldSkills Australia National Championships in Perth, as well as satellite events in Queensland and South Australia, were such an enormous success last week.

Over three exciting days, over 50 exhilarating skills and trade competitions were held across multiple locations, while visitors to our flagship event at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre were able to immerse themselves in cutting edge VR and tech at the new STEMhub, get hands on at our Try’aSkill demo areas, and explore the myriad career pathways ahead of them.

If you missed watching our livestreams last week, we have some highlights available on our social media pages.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made these events possible – our generous partners and supporters, our dedicated volunteers and of course our competitors, whose passion for trades and skills are at the heart of everything we do.


The 2021 WorldSkills Australia National Championships would not be possible without our valuable event and education partners:
