World Skills Competition

WorldSkills is an international organization dedicated to vocational training and development. Established approximately 50 years ago as the International Vocational Training Organization, the mission of WorldSkills is to challenge young people, their teachers, trainers and employers to achieve world-class standards of competence in commerce, services and industry. They are also committed to promoting and enhancing the status of vocational training for young people.

Like the Olympics, WorldSkills member countries bid well in advance to be the host country for the competition, which takes place every second year. Team Canada is formed the previous year at the end of the Canadian Skills Competition, giving competitors another year to prepare for the rigorous international competition.

The next World Skills Competitions will be in Leipzig, Germany, in 2013.
