This year, WorldSkills regional competitions will happen all over Australia to champion excellence in vocational, technological and service-oriented careers.  

The competitions provide an amazing opportunity for students to develop their skills, foster life-long partnerships and build industry networks.

WorldSkills also provides a unique opportunity for students to represent their region, state and ultimately their country, through their chosen profession.

“I really enjoyed WorldSkills it was such a fun experience. I learned many new hospitality and everyday life skills that I can use wherever my career takes me. Competing alongside the students from my class was great; we were all nervous, but everyone relaxed and got on with it. My biggest challenge on the day was coffee making, but I was most proud of my overall customer service. I hope to continue to work in hospitality to support myself through university, where I aim to study teaching. ”

Nell Trotter, 2022 VETDSS Food & Beverage WorldSkills Winner 


“Competing in WorldSkills was a chance to extend my knowledge and experience. I enjoyed using my mind to read the plans and then have the opportunity to add my creative input. I’m glad I decided to be involved. In the future, I hope to integrate plumbing with my Certificate III Horticulture into work opportunities.”
