World Skills Australia
aims to encourage Australians to celebrate vocational education and training, to shift perceptions and create the understanding that to learn a skill, to choose a skill-based career, is one of the most important decisions a young person and their family will ever make.
Competitions operate on a two year cycle. Regional Competitions flow into National Competitions and National Competition winners, if eligible, can become members of the Team Australia Skillaroos. WSA's program of competitions, aligned to National Training Packages, work to ensure that today's young people have the skills and abilities to compete within a rapidly changing global marketplace. Painting apprentices from across Australia and the Pacific compete to showcase their skills.
