SkillELECTRIC will return in 2021

Following the below announcement from WorldSkills UK this month, all SkillELECTRIC competition activity for 2020 has been postponed but will return in 2021 with a new competition cycle. To register your interest for taking part next year send us your details via our Contact Us page.

Message from WorldSkills UK:

Given the ongoing uncertainty with COVID-19, and after consultation with partners due to safety concerns, we will not be running the national competition cycle in 2020 including the national final. LIVE will be postponed from this year until 18-20th November 2021, when we’ll return to the NEC stronger than ever.

We know that this will be disappointing news but we want to stress that we have not taken this decision lightly, our number one priority is the health and safety of everyone taking part in our competitions.

Although we will not be running the national cycle in 2020, we will continue to work with you to provide further skills and mindset development that will ensure that while you are not able to compete as first planned, you will still receive significant value from your engagement in WorldSkills UK activities.

This will include access to further resources and virtual bootcamps that will provide information and advice regarding well-being and employability. This activity will be supported by our Skills Champions, performance coaches and our partner, Youth Employment UK.

The first of these activities will take place on the 21st July and we encourage you to register below https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/worldskills-uk/wsuk-wellbeing-and-employability-webinar/2020-07-21/14:00/t-rymmpl

We will also be keeping you updated as more opportunities become available.

For those of you who have already taken part in passive tests and qualifiers, we would like to thank you for your commitment and dedication, and we will be sending out certificates of participation to reflect your development to date. Your Competition Organising Partner will also be in touch with you regarding this.

We know these are difficult times, but we encourage you all to stay positive, think long-term and keep focussed on your future goals.

We thank you for registering your interest this year and would hope to see you again for our 2021 competitions. We will send details when the registration period re-opens.
