WorldSkills is preparing a unique format for international skill competitions in 2022, showcasing 61 skills in 15 different countries and regions around the world. WorldSkills Competition 2022 Special Edition (WSC2022SE) is the official replacement for WorldSkills Shanghai 2022, cancelled in May due to the pandemic.

The WorldSkills Competition inspires youth to discover the many careers that are available in the skilled trade and technology sectors. With an increasing demand for skilled workers, the trade and technology sectors represent a lucrative and exciting career path for youth around the world.

Throughout the Competition, stakeholders from industry, government, and education are provided with the opportunity to exchange information and best practices regarding industry and professional education at networking events and thought-provoking conferences.

The event slogan is “Skills for the Future”, which is also the official Competition hashtag: #skillsforthefuture
