The project, focused on Skills Competitions, offers a supportive infrastructure for Welsh competitors competing at an International level.
Funding is available to support age appropriate competitors competing in WorldSkills UK competitions, which are aligned to competitions at an international level.
The delivery of the project, strives to improve competitor success through working collaboratively with competitors, training providers and employers across Wales.
We’ve an ambition to establish an ethos across training providers to deliver more than simply qualifications and deliver skills that are of a world-class standard, with experiences that build confidence and personal skills in individuals.
Competitors committed to succeed and excel in their skilled area, will through the provision of the project, have the opportunity to work with Sector Champions – experts employed by the project in specified skill sectors - to identify training needs and requirements to be addressed, in order to raise their standards and chances of future success.
Through supporting the development of competitors from Wales, the Inspiring Skills Excellence project aims to place Wales in a position to develop a greater number of competitors for selection in to Team UK for EuroSkills 2016 and, WorldSkills, Abu Dhabi 2017.
