The Foundation is sponsored by industry and supported by the Queensland Government.
WorldSkills Australia holds a number of competitions on a regional, national and international level over a two-year cycle.
Competition activity begins at a grass roots level, with competitions held in up to 34 regions across Australia. They test the skills and knowledge of apprentices, trainees and students who have a chance to win medals and go on to compete at a national level. The best of the best at the national competitions go on to compete at an international level.
WorldSkills also offers scholarships to help those involved pursue further skills development through study, work experience, overseas travel and financial support.
