WorldSkills

WorldSkills is the global movement for skills excellence and

development, raising the profile and recognition of skilled

professionals, and showcasing the importance of skills in

achieving economic growth and personal success. Set

up in 1950, the WorldSkills movement now represents

more than 50 skills in 82 member countries and regions.

WorldSkills competitors are trained, coached, and prepared

for skills competitions at regional, national, and international

level. City of Glasgow College has recognised the high value

of competitions to our students, as well as to the College's

reputation, and has developed a WorldSkills Training

Academy to support students as they progress along their

WorldSkills journey.

The WorldSkills Academy provides inspiring and innovative

work-relevant learning and teaching to our students through

an enhanced skills development programme. A "winning

mind-set" culture is embedded alongside associated

behaviours to help our competitors become the best in the

UK, and on the world stage. The Academy thereby helps to

shape and transform Scotland's young workforce. Working

in partnership with employers, the Academy aims to equip

every one of our participating students with the technical,

professional and meta skills required for success in the

world of work.
