Last week in Melbourne two important WorldSkills events were convened in Melbourne – the 2013 Youth Forum and the 2013 Regional Workshop.
The 2013 Youth Forum was the second Youth Forum convened by WSA and, like the first one in 2010, the Youth Forum delegates embraced the opportunity to share their ideas on what could be done to further promote WSA. Their energy and enthusiasm was palpable and culminated in a presentation to the 2013 Regional Workshop delegates – the perfect way to start what was an informative, constructive and collaborative workshop.
The 2013 Youth Forum and Regional Workshop highlighted to me the importance of our regions and the young competitors of WSA. They are the now and the future of WSA – and, we are in good hands.
