Called WorldSkills UK, competitors will work through regional heats towards finals held at Birmingham’s NEC. Those selected for Team UK will compete in Russia in 2019.

The UK rounds are managed by Semta, which has produced a series of videos to explain how the competition works. The regional heats are held at UK at engineering businesses and Further Education Colleges and the competition is open for registrations until April 7.

Semta’s UK competition organiser and career specialist Joanne O’Brien said: “Last year was incredible for the engineering competitions. No fewer than 10 out of 12 of Semta’s engineering team won medals at WorldSkills International in Sao Paulo, the nation’s best-ever haul.

“More than 130 talented young people made it to the finals in Birmingham in 2015 and we hope a similar number can make it through to this November’s Skills Show.

“It is a fantastic event where the elite of young engineers get an opportunity to showcase their skills in a competitive environment and inspire thousands of youngsters who come and watch them during the three days of the Skills Show to consider a career in engineering.”
