WorldSkills UK is the nation’s largest skills and careers event. It brings together apprentices, students, and young people from across the country to vie to be the best in their chosen skills. The competitions encourage young people to be ambitious in their pursuit of excellence, while equipping them with life-long skills.

This year over 6000 people registered to take part in more than 50 WorldSkills UK competitions. 442 students and apprentices have qualified for the finals, which means CWA finalists are in the top 7% of all students who registered to compete! CWA finalists also represent 30% of all finalists from the East of England.

The 2023 National Finals will take place between the 14th – 17th November in colleges, independent training providers and Universities across Greater Manchester. The awards ceremony will be held Friday 17th November at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

“WorldSkills is the pinnacle of all skills competitions and has been dubbed the Skills Olympics. The purpose of this event is to celebrate the achievement of the six CWA students who have secured their place in the national finals of WorldSkills UK 2023 and support them as they ‘Go for Gold’. They have done fantastically well and should be immensely proud of themselves”.
