Company Description

We achieve this through our three core programmes: Directions, Champions and Accelerate.


Any path to success has to start with the inspiration to walk it. We help young people think about their options by delivering a number of tailored experiential careers events and advice.

These events, including our highly interactive national showcase WorldSkills UK LIVE, bring together the UK’s leading employers, and showcase apprenticeships to help young people experience many careers in one place, raising their aspirations for getting the best start in work and life.


Through National Skills Competitions we have been creating excitement and passion for learning in young people for 65 years. Entering international skills competitions enables WorldSkills UK to benchmark the employability skills of our apprentices.


Accelerate draws on our knowledge of fast-tracking the development of young people’s skill sets and mind-set that we have gained through our work in experiential careers advice and skills competitions. Using this extensive experience, we are developing a range of paid-for products and services for the business and education sector.
