WorldSkills National Championships & Skills Show – Event Postponement

We have some great news – we are still going ahead with the WorldSkills Australia National Championships – it will just be moved to 2021!

At WorldSkills Australia, we place the highest priority on the health and safety of our event competitors and attendees. In light of restrictions now in place in response to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to postpone the WorldSkills Australia National Championships & Skills Show 2020 proudly funded by the Government of Western Australia.

Get ready to still support young Australians in Perth from Thursday 29 April – Saturday 01 May 2021, with the Closing Ceremony held on the evening of Sunday 02 May 2021.

We are thrilled that we have been able to secure alternative event dates with the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and we cannot wait to bring all the excitement and exhilarating competition of the WorldSkills Australia National Championships to Perth in 2021.

Further International competitors will now be invited to compete to assist with the final selection process for the 2021 Skillaroos where they will represent Australia at the upcoming 46th WorldSkills International Championships.
