Get ready to witness greatness, discover potential, and explore skills excellence at Australia’s largest trades and skills competition — the 2021 WorldSkills Australia National Championships!
This year’s competitions will give regional winners from across Australia an opportunity to put their talent to the test, with over 500 competitors showcasing their skills on a national stage as they compete for gold and a chance to represent Australia at the WorldSkills International Competition in Shanghai 2022. In addition to competing for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in their chosen skill area, with the top achievers potentially going on to compete internationally in the world championships as a member of the Skillaroos – the WorldSkills Australia International Team – there are leadership programs and scholarships to enable young people to become the very best versions of themselves.
Over three action-packed days, you’ll have access to an exciting array of interactive events, workshops and activities. Witness over 50 exhilarating skills and trade competitions, get immersed in cutting edge VR and tech at the new STEMhub, or Try’aSkill out for yourself at one of the demo areas.
Due to the evolving Covid-19 situation across the country, the format of the 2021 WorldSkills Australia National Championships has shifted to accommodate border control measures Australia-wide. Many competitions will still take place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and are open to the public with free tickets.
Other competitions will be taking place at other venues across Australia, and closed to the public, but will be available for viewing on WSA Live — the WorldSkills Australia dedicated livestream site.
And to make the event even more action-packed, the SkillsWest Careers and Employment Expo is also happening over the same three days at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre!
This year’s expo will host over 100 organisations and employers with career opportunities for all ages. The event is for school students, parents, graduates, jobseekers, people looking for training options, and workers seeking new training options. Be sure to stop by the Jobs and Skills Centre stand and get some free information and advice on jobs, careers and training!
